More details to follow soon, but please save the dates now for a joint venture of the ABA and AALS Criminal Justice Sections devoted to "Reducing Reliance on Incarceration."  One track of the ABA conference in October will be devoted to an "Academics' Colloquium."  Chris Slobogin will moderate a plenary session entitled "Decarceration: Taking Advantage of the Budget Crisis." Prawfs' own Shima Baradaran will moderate a break-out on "Decision-Making in Criminal Justice"; Sandra Guerra-Thompson and Lisa Smith are planning a panel on "Restorative Justice and Specialized Courts," and Cecelia Klingele is putting together a session  on "State Legislative Initiatives to Reduce Incarceration."  This will be an opportunity to discuss these timely and important issues in dialogue with practicing attorneys.  Confirmed speakers include a range of distinguished professors, judges, and criminal justice professionals, including Mary Fan, Todd Clear, Walter Dickey, Spurgeon Kennedy, Judge Nancy Gertner,  Judge Leonie Brinkema, Steven Chanenson, Michael Seidman, Judge Matthew J.
