CPD Hours Level
Learn Live 3.5 IntermediateInformation
SRA Competency B


This virtual classroom seminar will explore what happens when those imprisoned are transferred into hospital, released, or recalled under the Mental Health Act. Though this happens outside the criminal courts, it is frequently highly relevant to what happens in the court and is often of central importance to the client themselves.

Post-sentencing is an area that practitioners are often in the dark about and getting this wrong can result in your clients being misinformed so it is important to keep up to speed in this area. The live session will enable criminal practitioners to understand the processes and identify their impact on criminal proceedings.

What You Will Learn

This live broadcast will cover the following:

  • How release from prison operates in standard determinate sentences
    • When and how prisoners can apply for early release
    • When the power to detain may apply and what that means

    • Where the parole board may be involved
