Georgia-Mae Chung attends Parliament for launch of Justice Committee report on public opinion and understanding of sentencing.


The Justice Committee has published a report on public opinion and understanding of sentencing. This is the first time that the Committee’s work has focused on this topic. The Sentencing Academy, for which Georgia-Mae works as a consultant, played a substantial role in inspiring the report and subsequently contributing to it through its research.

On 8th November 2023, Georgia-Mae attended an event at the Houses of Parliament to launch the report. The event was chaired by Joshua Rozenberg KC (Hon) with parliamentarians, legal practitioners, and academics present. There was discussion of the report’s conclusions and critical debate about the realities of sentencing and potential policy and legislative change.

The report was published on 25th October 2023. The government must respond to it within two months.

The report can be viewed here.
