This course will be of benefit to anyone involved in the Criminal Justice System. It will deal with the major pieces of legislation, of relevance to criminal practitioners, which have received Royal Assent between 2019 and 2021 and which are, either wholly or partially, in force.
The following important pieces of legislation will be covered:
The Terrorist Offenders (Restriction On Early Release) Act 2020 (fully in force)
Statutory Instrument 2020 No.158 (fully in force)
The Voyeurism (Offences) Act 2019 (fully in force)
The Stalking Protection Act 2019 (fully in force)
The Offensive Weapons Act 2019 (partially in force)
The Sentencing Act (or Code if you prefer) 2020 (fully in force) (Committals for sentence + an Overview of the Code)
The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 (partially in force)
The Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Act 2021 (partially in force)
That's rather a lot to get through in an hour and I shall concentrate on those parts of the legislation which are currently in force. As with much legislation we shall have to wait for the Statutory Instruments bringing into force certain Sections of these Acts during the remainder of 2021 and into 2022.
These pieces of legislation make important amendments to the law and this webinar is a perfect opportunity to bring yourself up to date.
