What next for the Sentencing Council?
**Please note that this event has been postponed until further notice**
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 at The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1PL to help us celebrate our first 10 years and look forward to the next.
This 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 be launching a consultation on 10 March 2020 to consider what is next for the Sentencing Council. Our event will draw on the consultation themes in a discussion that will help shape the future priorities and direction of the Council.
In the afternoon, we will be running six syndicate groups. Each group will be run twice.
If you would like to reserve a place for this event, please email by 20 March 2020. Please tell us your which are your two preferred syndicate groups and select a third option in case either of your preferred groups are oversubscribed.
Coronavirus/ COVID-19 We are closely monitoring the situation in relation to coronavirus and will continue to follow government advice. Please watch this page for updates.
