juvenile justice reform
The April 2014 Part of the Criminal Law Journal includes three interesting articles on different aspects of criminal law. The first article is by Andrew Trotter and Harry Hobbs who look at recent juvenile justice reforms in Queensland and place them in a historical context. The second article comes from Andrew Torre and analyses the implications of jail time discounting for court sentences. The final article is by Luke McNamara who considers a judicial contribution to over-criminalisation: the common law rules on extended joint criminal enterprise in their application to murder. Also in this Part is an Editorial about sentencing law reform and a digest of criminal law cases. Not to be missed!
