Prison law

There is an overlap between mental health law and prison law, particularly in the case of s47/49 and s45A patients. Currently the prison law resources on this website are limited.

It is good to be reasonably familiar with the different types of sentence as, for example, s47/49 patients become s47 patients on the date when they would be entitled to be release. Also, under s74, restricted patients who "win" their Mental Health Tribunals may, depending on their circumstances, be entitled to a subsequent Parole Board hearing.
