Tracey Booth

Dr Tracey Booth is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Technology, Sydney. She researches in the areas of bail, victim participation in sentencing and other criminal justice processes, and the restorative capacities of victim impact statements.

Tracey recently completed a qualitative study investigating victim participation, particularly via oral victim impact statements, in the sentencing of homicide offenders in the NSW Supreme Court drawing on data gathered from interviews with crime victims and observation of sentencing hearings. Her current research explores the reconceptualisation of the contemporary sentencing hearing as a forum that promotes a restorative approach to dealing with the consequences of crime.
