Another timely NASC conference this August in Alabama

I am pleased to highlight on this blog the National Association of Sentencing Commissions annual conference, which this year is being held in Point Clear, Alabama on August 8-10, 2010. This year's conference is titled "Sound Sentencing Policy: Balancing Justice and Dollars," and this year's agenda reveals how timely, thoughtful and forward-looking the program is for today's sentencing times . One of the conference organizers sent me an e-mail with this additional information about this year's event:

We are seeking to target a broader audience for the conference, and we hope many of your readers may be interested in attending.  The conference will offer plenaries, workshops and roundtable discussions on issues relating to sentencing practices and the hurdles criminal justice officials must overcome during these times of shrinking budgets and scarce resources, as well as innovative ways that states have faced these challenges.

Welcoming the conference attendees will be Alabama’s Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb, Federal Circuit Judge, Bill Pryor, former Attorney General of Alabama and leader in establishing Alabama’s Sentencing Commission, and Commission Chair, Retired Circuit Judge Joe Colquitt, Beasley Professor of Law, University of Alabama School of Law.

A lot more information on the conference is available on the conference website at this link.

Please, wake me up when they are discussing ending the psychotic idea of sovereign immunity from the first and last duty of government, to protect the public from vicious predators, the good customers of the lawyer.
