Mark your Blakely calenders

Though, as noted here, it appears we still have a wait for Booker and Fanfan, those interested in contemplating the future of the federal sentencing system have no shortage of exciting events this week.

For example, in New York on Monday, Nov. 15, 2004 at 6 pm, the Jacob Burns Ethics Center of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law/Yeshiva University is having a program entitled "An End to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines?: 20 Years of Federal Sentencing Reform at Issue Before the United States Supreme Court."  This program, which will be moderated by Adam S. Lurie, is scheduled to include criminal defense attorney Josh Dratel, former US District Judge John S. Martin, former Assistant Attorney General James K. Robinson, and Yale Law School Professor Kate Stith.  More details concerning this event can be found here.

Then, in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2004 at 5 pm, a program entitled "Crime and Punishment: Federal Sentencing Guidelines" is the co-production of Justice Talking and the National Constitution Center.  The guests for the event are Christopher Wray, Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, and former US District Judge John S. Martin.  More details concerning this event can be found here and here.

And, of course, in Washington DC on Nov. 16-17, the US Sentencing Commission is holding public hearings to discuss Blakely and the future of federal sentencing.  I hope to be able to post the full details of this event, along with some of the written testimony, by late Monday before I head to these hearings myself.
