Last call for submission of commentaries for FSR providing "Advice to the Commissioners"

As explained in this post a few weeks ago, the Federal Sentencing Reporter is devoting its April 2011 issue to publishing a series of short commentaries — ranging in length from a few paragraphs to a few pages — on federal sentencing topics in a form that provides “Advice for the U.S. Sentencing Commissioners.”   I am pleased not only that we have received nearly a dozen recent submissions for this issue, but also to be able to report that we probably have the time and space for a few more pieces.  But they need to come in ASAP.

As explained before, submissions should be sent electronically to sentencinglaw @ gmail.com with a clear indication of the author and the author’s professional affiliation.  All judges, lawyers and other sentencing practitioners, legal academics and sentencing researchers, and any others with an informed interest in federal sentencing law and practice are encouraged to submit a commentary.  But they need to be submitted soon in order to have a real chance for an on-time April publication.

How comments from the owners of the law, those who pay the salaries of the lawyers? Are they welcome?
