New Workings of the local Osler
Looking for an interesting short article on sentencing to peruse? If so, might I recommend After the Implosion: Guidelines for a New Era, which you can download here.
After the Implosion builds on my two most recent articles, Seeking Justice Below the Guidelines: Sentencing as an Expression of Natural Law (available in draft form here) (which will appear in the Georgetown Journal of Law and Public Policy, and Policy, Uniformity, Discretion, and Congress's Sentencing Acid Trip, available here, which just came out in the BYU Law Review. The two prior articles explain why we should implode the federal sentencing guidelines, while the latest one explains what should replace them.
Because if you break something, you should always be ready to replace it!
