Senate Judiciary Committee hearings of note

Folks who enjoy hearing about the crime and justice work of federal branches other than the judiciary will want to check out these two Senate hearings this week:

  • This morning, the full Senate Committee on the Judiciary today had this hearing on "The Thompson Memorandum's Effect on the Right to Counsel in Corporate Investigations."  As of this writing, I think the live webcast is over, but there are links to written testimony still available.  Any attendees (or participants) are highly encouraged to send in reports of any highlights.
  • Tomorrow afternoon, the Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs has scheduled this hearing on "Challenges Facing Today's Federal Prosecutors."  I suspect this hearing will follow-up on reports of resource shortages for prosecutors, though as of this writing the official website does not reveal who will be testifying.
