The first edition of Parole Board Hearings published in 2006, was heralded as being the first book dedicated to explaining the decision-making powers and procedures of the Parole Board. There have been a number of notable developments since the first edition.

The Parole Board (Amendment) Rules 2009 - which remove the right to an oral hearing for lifers and IPPs - are comprehensively covered by the authors. Also new to this edition are the new procedures for victims' attendance at parole hearings, the proposed changes to the public funding of parole cases and the implications of the House of Lords' decision in James and others on article 5, accessing courses and delays.

This new edition builds on the strengths of the original publication, providing detailed, practical guidance on the following key areas:

  • Effective representation for prisoners at Parole Board hearings
  • Challenging Parole Board decisions
  • Other organisations involved in the parole process
  • Risk assessment carried out by the Parole Board
  • Determinate and indeterminate sentences
  • The test applied for release
  • Oral hearings procedure
  • Life sentence review by the Parole Board
  • Licences
  • Recall to prison
  • Judicial and non-judicial remedies
All the key statutory provisions and the Parole Board Rules under which the Board operates, as well as a list of useful addresses, are annexed to the text.
