Sentencing and Penal Policy in Canada: Cases, Materials, and Commentary, 4th Edition is a current and comprehensive analysis of sentencing laws and principles in Canada. This leading casebook covers all aspects of sentencing law, including judicial methodology, aggravating and mitigating factors, plea discussions, probation, imprisonment, and more.
The fourth edition includes all new and significant decisions from the Supreme Court of Canada and other appellate courts, including R v Morris, R v Anderson, and R v Sharma. It also features a new chapter on systemic racism in sentencing, as well as new discussion of the constitutionality of sentencing regimes and offender designations.
The expert author team takes a multidisciplinary approach to identifying and critically examining new developments and trends. This diversity not only gives this edition breadth and depth but also makes this text applicable to readers interested in law and social sciences.
