Updated accounting of upcoming events of note and possible interest

I was pleased to see some students were able to attend some of the events previous flagged in September, and I now can provide an updated and expanded list of online events that might be of interest to sentencing fans throughout the month of October.  Here is a quick run down of these events with links for more information:

Tuesday, Oct. 6  1pm   Two Views: An Exploration of SCOTUS's Criminal Law Docket

Every(!) Wednesday in October  ASU State of Incarceration Virtual Summit

Wednesday, Oct. 7  3pm  Criminal Justice Reform Workshop Series: Prosecutor Caseloads and Sentencing Outcomes

Wednesday, Oct. 7   6pm    Forces of Freedom or Fraud? Do Conviction Integrity Units Matter in Wrongful Conviction Cases

Friday, Oct. 9  3pm   Apprendi at 20

Monday-Thursday Oct. 19-22  Prison Brake: Rethinking the Sentencing Status Quo​ (attending the October 20 afternoon sessions will be in place of our class)

Wednesday Oct. 21  12noon  Bodiker Lecture on Criminal Justice

I continue to welcome folks identifying other notable online events to include on this list.  And, as I have mentioned in class, I urge students to keep a "billing sheet" of time spent attending these or other sentencing-instructive events.
