LLB244 Criminal Law Sentencing

A knowledge of the principles of criminal law is fundamental to the practice of law. In order to practise in the criminal jurisdiction, a sound knowledge of the principles and procedures for sentencing offenders is essential. The sentencing of offenders is based on statutory and common law rules and criminological theories of punishment of offenders, as well as theories informing rehabilitation and responses to recidivism. Although this unit is based on the principles underlying the sentencing process, there is also considerable emphasis on the practical application of these in the sentencing process. This unit, a general elective in the law degree, builds on knowledge and skills gained in the core criminal law unit.
