This is the only current text dedicated to prisons law in Scotland, and there has never been a more relevant point to publish. Since the previous edition in 2007, two prisons have closed and two opened, with four more scheduled for replacement. There has been substantial legislative change in this time with the parole board altering its practices and procedures and several high profile issues such as prisoner votes and telephones in prison having been considered by the civil courts.
This essential new text shines a light on these concerns and provides guidance through them for solicitors and counsel, social workers and those with an interest in criminology and penology; and of course the parole board themselves. You can have the answers you need, with detailed explanation from an expert author. Whether you require clarification on the PSS system of supervision classifications and prison complaints procedure, or advice on sentencing practice this is the ideal trusted tool to ensure you have the up-to-date information you need.
