The research addresses two questions: 1. How many of what types of cases would be heard by single-judge divisions, if their jurisdictional limit were extended to offences attracting a maximum sentence of two years of imprisonment? 2. What is the opinion of prosecutors, judges and defence council about extension of the jurisdiction of single-judge divisions?
