3 October 2019: Switch On... Sentencing Advisory Council demonstrates SACStat

The Law Library of Victoria invites you to attend our Switch On... information sessions. These sessions are suited to judicial officers, court staff, legal professionals, law students, and anyone with an interest in law.

What sentences are Victorian courts imposing on people found guilty of littering? Or common assault? What is the age and gender profile of those sentenced for manslaughter? Is anyone in Victoria ever fined for blackmail? This workshop will introduce you to SACStat, a powerful online, interactive database of sentencing statistics that can answer these and other questions. The scope of the available data will be shown, and tips demonstrated for its navigation and use. To get the most out of this workshop, please bring your favourite internet enabled device - smart phone, tablet or laptop.
