Seminar Will Examine Federal Sentencing

Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 01:00

The New York City Bar Association is planning a CLE seminar titled The Basics of Federal Sentencing.

The program will take place on Thursday, March 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street, New York City.

This panel will discuss federal sentencing in the post- Booker era, from the new fundamentals to the cutting edge strategies counsel can now employ given the greater flexibility under the law. The panel will also focus on the Justice for All Act, a new federal law which permits crime victims broad opportunity to be heard at sentencing and to raise objections to the sentencing procedures.

The program co-chairs are Kenneth S. Levine, Carter Ledyard & Milburn LLP, and Zachary Margulis-Ohnuma, Law Office of Zachary Margulis-Ohnuma.

For information on available CLE credits and registration fees, see the Bulletin Board on The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel website at www.metro- corpcounsel.com.
