It refers to cases and other sources relevant to understanding Part IB, State and Territory law and the common law in so far as they relate to sentencing of a convicted federal offender
This review examines Part IB of the Crimes Act 1914 (Cth) to see whether it provides an efficient, effective and appropriate regime for the sentencing, administration and release of federal offenders, that is, offenders convicted of an offence against Commonwealth law.
