Lord Carloway delivering the Sacro Lecture 2013

Lord Carloway, Lord Justice Clerk, delivered the annual Sacro Lecture on Tuesday 5 November at Edinburgh's Playfair Library.

In his lecture, Lord Carloway provided an often personal insight into how sentencing has progressed over the years and the manner in which it might progress further.   

Sentencing: Beyond Punishment and Deterrance touched on many areas of sentencing including the considerations faced when passing sentence, the role of public opinion, the scope for rehabilitation within a sentence and the need for consistency and great public awareness of the process. 

The text of the lecture is now available for download. A video record of the lecture is also available from our YouTube channel.
