The Supreme Court has, in 2018, issued a variety of authoritative decisions in the criminal law and procedure sphere. These include pronouncements on areas such as charges, chain of custody, disclosure, the adduction of fresh evidence and the criminal reference procedure. 2018 also saw the Supreme Court building on the momentum from previous years by delivering a significant number of guideline judgments on sentencing straddling a large spectrum of offences including violence, sexual offences, narcotics offences and financial crime. This seminar aims to distil and discuss some of the more salient aspects of these developments and their implications for criminal law practitioners and prosecutors.
