This book explores ‘life after life imprisonment’ for the first cohort of discretionary life-sentenced prisoners who were released into the community following these significant changes to the life sentence system. It also examines the process of resettlement and desistance for the original subjects of the Parole Board study and investigates the challenges they present to practitioners tasked with their supervision in the community.

Keywords:   life imprisonment, life-sentenced prisoners, life sentence system, resettlement, desistance, Parole Board
