Sentencing in Criminal Law UK

(0)
This set of resources is everything needed for a lesson on sentencing in the UK. I would spread this over two lessons for A level students. 1 lesson focusing on aims and the next on the various types of sentencing. Included are a PowerPoint, activities, website links, quiz. You will find the PowerPoint may contain more information than needed for A level. This is to allow you to amend/remove whatever is not needed for your lesson.
