Smith E

Report

I used a table very similar to this as a student and found it to be very effective. The final column on sentencing is particularly useful at jogging your memory that sanctions are an important issue, and should way to round off an essay on this topic. Also, because it is best to address a problem using a tiered approach, most serious offence first working "downwards", this table assists helps students to memorise the hierarchy.
