Exciting times at OSU Moritz College of Law

As if the sentencing world was not dynamic enough, I have the pleasure of attending lots of exciting events in my own backyard at the OSU Moritz College of Law over the next 10 days:

  • Today Sentencing Hall of Famer US District Judge Nancy Gertner Court is delivering this year's Blackmun Lecture.  Her talk has this terrific title: "From Omnipotence to Impotence: American Judges and Sentencing."  Details about the event are here, and I am hopeful that Judge Gertner's talk will be published before long in the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law.
  • On Friday and Saturday, as detailed here, the Ohio State Law Journal has its annual symposium, and the topic is "Election Law and the Roberts Court."  Though this schedule does not list felon disenfranchisement as a distinct topic of discussion, I may ask some questions about what the participants think the Roberts Court could do on this issue.
  • Next Friday (October 6), as detailed here, the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law is having its own symposium on "Miranda at 40."  As this schedule details, this even brings together many leading lights on interrogation law and policy.
