Game plan for November 10 and the others classes before Thanksgiving

Here is a revised agenda for Thusday and beyond so that you can plan readings et al accordingly:

Thursday 11/10: Bodiker Lecture at 12 noon in Saxbe Auditorium (be sure to RSVP to make sure you get a lunch) , followed by a showing of  "Disturbing the Universe " in our classroom around 1:30pm, followed by class in which we will discuss the who and how of developing sentencing law for offense conduct and perhaps start to explore the why for considering offender circumstances at sentencing.

Tuesday 11/15Tiernan & USSG 3E1.1 (in casebook), as well as Problem 5-4 & Pepper (in on-line supplement at pp. 66-79, and also in recommended full form at this link).

Thursday 11/17 & Tuesday 11/22: Discuss McMillan Blakely & Problem 6-1 (in casebook) and, if time permits, discussion of plea bargaining realities and practices.

The trouble with thinking you went to a great law school is that most of us only go to one, so we have no comparisons.

W&L is known for its fabulous legal clinics. I was in one, and can say it was the most valuable parts of my legal education and career. http://www.atcoachoutletsonline.com/

I thought all schools were this good! Then I went into the world and heard about programs (or lack thereof) in other law schools. Most did not hold a candle to W&L. http://www.saleincoachoutlet.com/
