“The Federal Sentencing Guide is simply the best way to get into the cases. The summaries are clear and the newsletters have last week’s cases.”
— A. Chaset, Alexandria, VA
Top defense lawyers, probation officers, and U.S. Attorney’s offices around the country have been depending on the Federal Sentencing Guide since the Guidelines were enacted. Here’s why:
- Comprehensive. The Guide summarizes and organizes every issue of every appellate-level federal sentencing decision published since the Sentencing Guidelines were enacted in 1987. 14,000 cases are digested in 7,000 pages.
- Well-organized. A detailed topical index closely tracks the Guidelines. Within each topic, the cases are organized by circuit and each summary begins with a boldfaced, single-sentence statement of the holding.
- Timely. The Guide’s newsletter is published every two weeks, and is posted on the newly revised site SentencingCases.com as a PDF download immediately after production, so you promptly receive summaries of the very latest cases. A new index is provided every two months, and the summaries are organized by topic into an annual digest. Citations include all subsequent history, and are continually updated.
- Reliable. The authors are national authorities on federal sentencing and co-authors of the leading sentencing treatise.
