Interactive case study
The new resource presents an interactive scenario, following the court case of Paul, who has robbed a shop. As web users go through the case, they decide what happens next and choose what sentence they would give Paul - if they were the Sheriff.
This new resource is an addition to our pages on sentencing laws; the factors a judge will consider when deciding a sentence and the sentences available in Scotland.
All the information is linked to our jargon buster which explains legal terminology in easy to understand language.
We are continuing to expand our website and if you would like to suggest further additions please email us.
