Over 175 federal judges, U.S. Attorneys, Federal Public Defenders, private counsel and probation officers attended the two day event. The first day was focused on the basics of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. Day two included presentations from practitioners and legal experts from the U.S. Sentencing Commission. Attendees also heard from experts within the Bureau of Prisons. The highlight for many was a conversation between Judge Richard Kopf and Georgetown Law Professor Shon Hopwood.
