Another great agenda for the US Sentencing Commission's annual training seminar

I am pleased to see and report that the US Sentencing Commission now has up on its website this full agenda for the USSC's annual training program, which is now only a month away.  Here are the basics from the USSC site:

The 2011 Annual National Training Program will be held on May 18-20, 2011, in San Diego, California.  There is NO registration fee or tuition for this program and FREE CLE credits are available.  Online registration is [at this link].

In a number of prior years, I have been on the panel titled "Guideline Departures and Variances," but this year I have the honor of being on a panel on "Plea Bargaining" which takes place in the afternoon of the last day of the event.

It will be interesting to see how the Commission attempts to keep themselves and the guidelines "real world" relevant in a post-Booker world. After my 20+ years of dealing with this big pile of intellectually tortured subjectivity masquerading as sentencing science, I'd be delighted if the seminar turned to be an announcement of the repeal of it all...
