Sentencing Practice brings together, in easily updated looseleaf format, an edited collection of case digests arranged under subject headings, along with sentencing details.
It can be difficult for judges and legal practitioners to gain easy access to the information they need to determine the appropriate range of sentence for a particular case being considered. The expanded collection of case digests in Sentencing Practice provides a systematic means of identifying the appropriate range of sentence for any particular case, and for discovering what sentences have been upheld or substituted on repeal.
Cases have been selected and digested by an expert team of sheriffs and legal practitioners, led by Sheriff Morrison, QC.
