Abstract:
This thesis examines Schedule 21 to the Criminal Justice Act 2003 and its impact on the law for sentencing homicide. It seeks to establish the intention behind the statutory guidelines for murder, and critique the rules therein, using this analysis to inform an evaluation of the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)'s interpretation and application of the schedule in appellate cases. It also, by virtue of the investigation into the schedule's motivations and the statutory framework accompanying it, considers if Schedule 21 has implications for the sentencing of other homicide offences, and concluding that it does, goes on to explore whether any such influence has been accorded to the schedule in the sentencing of manslaughter.
