SL&P honored again by ABA Journal

ABAJ I am pleased and honored to report that this blog has once again been selected as one of the ABA Journal's Blawg 100. The ABAJ's annual list of the best of the blawgosphere appears in the December issue of the magazine, and is available online at this link.  Here is how the ABA Journal kindly describes this blog: "A perennial favorite, Sentencing Law and Policy doesn’t disappoint. Ohio State law prof Douglas Berman offers daily sophisticated reviews of cases in the news and headed for the spotlight."

In addition to thanking the ABA Journal for giving me this honor now for the third year in a row, I also want to thanks all the readers and commentors who keep helping me find the energy (and often the insights) to keep this blog going.  I doubt I would have expected to still be blogging so much five years after Blakely and Booker first made this space so exciting; it is quite clear to me that I now maintain this blog largely because I greatly enjoy the engagement, and learn so much, from readers and commentators concerning the array of topics I discuss.

Hardly unexpected, but nonetheless congratulations are in order for the good work you do on this blog. I hope I will be able to continue reading for another five years.

This blog is better than Westlaw or Lexis for sentencing issues. Not only is SL&P indispensable to anyone practicing criminal law, I now have a kinder and gentler attitude toward Ohio State sports.

Thanks Professor! (and Go Buckeyes, unless they are playing Tulane, South Carolina, any other SEC school, a CUSA school, Duke, UNC, Southern Conference schools, Bearcats or Northwestern)

Doug --

Well deserved. I don't know where you get the time or energy. Thank you for tolerating the diversity of views here.

Congratulations to Prof. Berman on this high honor.

It is the hierarchy expressing its gratitude for his carrying its standard line. Free the criminals to generate jobs for its members. Explode procedure, uncertainty, inscrutability to generate jobs for its members. Forget the victims to generate jobs for its members.
