SRA Competency B


The Sexual Offences Act is 20 years old in 2023.

Having largely replaced the Sexual Offences Act 1956, the law was updated substantially to bring the law on sexual offences into the 21st century. Despite this, the issue of sexual offences is never far from the headlines.

20 years on and new criminal offences are still being added to the statute books; 20 years on and the issue of disclosure is still bedevilling criminal trials. And 20 years on, we still face the challenges of abuse of process, evidence, registration requirements and sentencing.

This virtual classroom seminar is intended for criminal lawyers at all levels - be it police stations, Magistrates Courts, Crown Courts or RASSO unit lawyers.

What You Will Learn

This live broadcast will cover the following:

  • Disclosure - does the concept of a ‘digital strip-search’ really exist?
  • Evidential issues under the Act - must the defendant have a sexual intent in order to be convicted of sexual assault?
  • Rape & consent - the very latest from the Court of Appeal
  • New sexual offences under the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022
  • The expansion of the law in relation to voyeurism
  • Sentencing
  • Registration requirements
  • Sexual Harm Prevention Orders
