Two up-coming (and one past) great sentencing events

'Tis the season for academic conferences of various sorts, and two great-looking up-coming Booker events merit note:

  • As detailed here, at Fordham School of Law on March 7 there will be a program entitled "Sentencing under Advisory Guidelines: The View From District Judges" in which nearly all my favorite federal district judges are scheduled to participate.  With Judges Adelman and Gertner and Kopf and Lynch and Presnell all involved, the event may be one of the largest gathering of member of my (imaginary) Sentencing Judges Hall of Fame.

  • As detailed here, at the the Pacific McGeorge School of Law on March 10 there will be this symposium to consider "the issues raised by the Booker opinions as well as post-Booker sentencing practice in the federal courts."  The speak list is impressive, and the issues covered looks thoughtful and comprehensive.

In addition, I noticed that the Texas Law Review earlier this month had this terrific symposium on "Punishment Law & Policy."  And videos of this symposium's panels can be accessed at this link.

I wish my schedule would allow it, but sadly no. Thanks for asking. Might you send a report for posting if you are going to be there?

I will be there and will gladly send a report to you. For your future edification, the transcript of the evening will likely be published in the fall in the Fordham law review. Regardless, I'll send you the report
