What next for the Sentencing Council?

April 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the Sentencing Council.

Lord Justice Holroyde, Chairman, and Members of the Council invite you to join us on Friday 3 April 2020 to help us celebrate our first 10 years and look forward to the next.

Our one-day event will look at the impact of the Sentencing Council, the evolution of the sentencing guidelines and what effect these have had on the approach to sentencing and the work of the courts.

Building on this insight and looking forward, we also want to hear your thoughts on how the Council might balance its obligations and objectives over the next 10 years. We will consider the proposals put forward in our “next ten years” consultation in a discussion that will help shape the future priorities and direction of the Council.

Please join us for the day at The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1PL.

Details of the programme will be publicised nearer to the time.  In the meantime, if you would like to reserve a place for this event (which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis), please us.
