18:00 - 20:00
We wrote to you about an event on the 18thApril where we will be addressed by the Sentencing Council on their current consultation concerning changes to credit for guilty pleas.
We would encourage you to book your places as soon as possible to hear and to take the opportunity to raise concerns about these important but controversial proposals, to encourage defendants to enter guilty pleas at a very early stage in the proceedings.
Please try to attend the event, not least to express our universal concern that these proposals are flawed and unworkable.
Also, please circulate to your colleagues and encourage them to attend.
We have reserved the bar area at Hodge Jones and Allen in anticipation of a good turnout.
Starts: 6 pm
Date: Monday 18th April
Venue: Hodge Jones and Allen (bar area)
Cost: Free to members £10 to non members (but free if you join the LCCSA)
1.5 hours CPD
Please contact Sara at Saraboxer@aol.com to reserve your place.
