Off to a great NASC Conference

To really be in tune with the full national story of modern sentencing reforms (and the fall-out from Blakely and Booker), Washington DC is the place to be this coming week for the 2005 Conference of the National Association of Sentencing Commissions, which starts today and runs through Tuesday.  The Conference is fittingly entitled "The Continuing Evolution of Sentencing," and the particulars are detailed in this schedule.  There will be lots and lots of state Blakely and federal Booker talk throughout the conference, as well as coverage of a number of other important sentencing reform issues.

I will be heading to DC this afternoon to attend the NASC conference.  I have the honor of participating in a Monday panel discussing mandatory sentencing, and I am looking forward to every session over the two days of the conference.  Blogging will be light during the conference, though I hope in the evenings to report on some of what I am learning.
