Materials for teaching Blakely and Booker

As noted in this post from August, last semester I had the pleasure of figuring out how to teach Blakely as the legal issues unfolded and as I waited (impatiently) for a decision in Booker.  This semester, I suspect criminal law and procedure teacher around the country are again looking for ways to teach Blakely and now Booker in sentencing courses and in standard criminal law and procedure courses.

To aid in this endeavor, I am proud to now be able to offer a 100-page Blakely/Booker special supplement I have produced along with my casebook co-authors Nora Demleitner, Marc Miller and Ron Wright.  Aspen Publishers, the producer of our main text Sentencing Law and Policy: Cases, Statutes and Guidelines, has graciously granted a general permission for any teacher (not just teachers using our sentencing volume or the Miller & Wright Criminal Procedures text) to make use of all or part of this interim supplement for non-commercial purposes until June 1, 2005. Indeed, Aspen has granted a general permission for anyone to make use of the interim supplement for non-commercial purposes in this period. 

You can access the supplement by clicking on the document's cover which appears in the left side-bar.  In addition to edited versions on Blakely and Booker, the supplement includes sections on "Federal Responses to Blakely" and "State Responses to Blakely."  You can also access this supplement, an edited version of Booker, and other sentencing materials at this website supporting our sentencing text.  My co-authors and I hope you find the supplement useful, and we welcome comments and suggestions.
