Mark your Booker calenders

UPDATE: Some additional events have been added below.

Not surprisingly, the list of noteworthy Booker events grows every day, and here I spotlight some upcoming dates marked on my calender:

Today: As previously detailed here, this afternoon the Practising Law Institute has arranged for a "Telephone Briefing" at 1:00pm EST to examine the impact of Booker with USSC Commissioner Michael Horowitz and Professor Leonard Orland.

Feb 15-16: The USSC conducts Public Hearings in DC, and at the USSC website are the full Public Hearing Agenda, the circulated list of Topics of Discussion, and even a very personal Sample Hearing Invitation

Feb 16: The ACS at NYU Law School is hosting A Panel Discussion entitled "The Future of Federal Sentencing After Booker / Fanfan" with Judge John Gleeson, AUSA Daniel Alonso and Professor Rachel Barkow.  The event is in Vanderbilt Hall Room 210 at 6:30pm and is open to the public.

Feb 24: As detailed in the flyer which can be downloaded here, the Association of the Bar of the City of New York has an impressive looking evening program planned entitled simply "Federal Sentencing After Booker/Fanfan".  I was asked to note that "the Association recently lowered the fees for this course for those in public interest/public service to $40 for Association members and $70 for non-members."  Download ny_city_bar_booker_flyer.pdf

Feb 24: I see from the PRACDL Blog this notice of a major Booker/Crawford event to include Judge Nancy Gertner and attorney Peter Goldberger.  (How these folks were convinced to leave the Northeast in February to go to Puerto Rico I'll never know.)

Feb 25: As detailed here, the Association of Federal Defense Attorneys has planned a full-day seminar, entitled "Federal Sentencing In A New Era After Booker/Fanfan," which takes place at Los Angeles Airport Westin Hotel.  I am very pleased to be participating in this event (and not only because it allows me leave Ohio for LA in February). 

March 3: As detailed here, Harvard Law School's Journal on Legislation has a Symposium entitled "Criminal Sentencing at the Crossroads," which will focus on Blakely and Booker and has impressively constituted "policy" and "practitioner" panels.

March 15: As detailed here, ALI-ABA has arranged for a webcast on "Federal Sentencing Guidelines after Booker and Fanfan."  I am very pleased to be participating in this event.

I am sure there are a host of other Booker events in the coming weeks, and readers are encouraged to use the comments or to send me an e-mail with pertinent dates and places for events that may be of general interest.
