​Review of sentencing for murder and manslaughter

The Attorney General has asked us to review sentencing for murder and manslaughter, including the penalties imposed for domestic and family violence homicides and the standard non-parole periods for murder.

Call for preliminary submissions

We are inviting preliminary submissions to help us frame the issues that we should address in consultations. In the first half of 2019, we will produce a consultation paper dealing with the issues identified by the terms of reference and any preliminary submissions we receive.

The deadline for preliminary submissions is Friday 8 March 2019.
