Criminal sentencing as practical wisdom

Lorana Bartels

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


The book commences with an overview of previous research on judicial sentencing decision-making in England and Wales, Scotland, Canada, and Australia, as well as examples of judicial officers declining to be involved in such research. Brown sets out the methodology for his research in Chapter Two, including issues in relation to gaining access. I could particularly relate to this section, as I also interviewed judicial officers for my PhD, speaking with 16 of the then 18 judicial officers in Tasmania about their views on suspended sentences.
