Could you help us develop and monitor the Council’s sentencing guidelines? We are looking for judges and magistrates to join our research pool and take part in occasional research exercises. These exercises help us to understand how guidelines are being used in practice, identify any issues and assess their potential impact on sentencing practice. They also make sure that the guidelines are informed by the experience and expertise of the judges and magistrates who use them.

If you are willing to be contacted occasionally to participate in short research exercises, please fill in this short form. Or, to find out more about the research pool, get in touch with us at
