Community Education Events in Gippsland, March 2019

Date of Publication
31 January 2019

The Sentencing Advisory Council and the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria are co-hosting free community education events across Gippsland between 4 and 7 March 2019.

At each event, you will find out how courts make sentencing decisions as we take you through a real-life case of culpable driving causing death. You will learn the basics of sentencing law, choose a sentence for the offender, and then compare your sentence with the sentence actually imposed by the judge.

We invite discussion during the events and welcome your views.
