Sentencing in criminal cases has long been considered an art form and not a science. Is it any wonder then that those sentences divide public opinion so readily? We discuss the new Scottish Sentencing Council and its objectives to promote consistency and transparency in sentencing practice across Scotland with the effect of raising public confidence in, and understanding of our criminal justice system.

For further info please see the eUpdate The Scottish Sentencing Council on our blog.
