Booker events not to be missed

As detailed last month in this post, there are no shortage of exciting events to enhance your Booker knowledge.  But, as you update your Booker calenders, I want to spotlight two particular coming attractions.

First, next Tuesday, March 15, ALI-ABA has arranged for this webcast/video-conference on "Federal Sentencing Guidelines after Booker and Fanfan."  I am very pleased to be participating in this event, along with not only Professors Nancy King and Stephen Saltzburg, but also key "insiders" such as US District Judge Paul Friedman, who is a member of the Advisory Committee on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Michael O'Neill, former USSC Commissioner and now Chief Counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Deborah Rhodes, who serves as Justice Department's ex-officio member on the USSC.  I have already learned a lot from this group just by participating in the event's planning, and the technology facilitates participation no matter where one is located.

Second, in San Francisco on May 25-28, 2005, the mother of all Booker gatherings will take place as part of the 14th Annual National Seminar on the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which is a joint project of the Federal Bar Association and the US Sentencing Commission.  As detailed in the brochure which can be downloaded below, nearly every big name in the Booker world will be participating in this program.  I am heartbroken I have to miss this Booker event not to be missed because of a prior commitment (and my family might break me in other ways if I tried to change plans).
