This event will explore recent legal developments and emerging practical trends in the federal sentencing system at both the district and circuit court levels. The discussion will consider whether now, a full six years after the Supreme Court's landmark Booker ruling, the status of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines as advisory serves or undermines the goal of a fair, efficient and transparent sentencing system for federal offenders.
