A Guide to the New Law. Legislation Guides
The Sexual Offences Act is the most far-reaching and comprehensive legislative reform in the area for over 100 years. It aims to overhaul and consolidate all sexual offences into one major Act and to introduce and define a number of new offences. This guide provides detailed advice on the practical implications of these radical changes including: strengthening and modernising the law on sex offences, including consent, indecency, prostitution, trafficking, sexual assault and rape; increased protection for children and vulnerable people; the introduction of measures to tighten the requirements of the sex offender's register and improve monitoring of offenders. Written by a practising criminal lawyer, this authoritative guide is essential reading for criminal lawyers who need to advise clients on the new law. In addition to detailed commentary the book includes the full text of the new Act.
