Sentencing Guidelines: Lessons for the States, 44 SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY LAW JOURNAL 387 (2000)
The tide of our panel is, "Where We Are and How we Got Here." My task is to explain "how we got here," while the rest of the panel will explore where we are-that is, how well or poorly the federal guidelines system is working. The last panel of the day, of course, is "Where Should We Go From Here?" Inevitably, that question is going to be addressed, explicitly or implicitly, throughout the day.
