The Court s treatment of ABA standards, especially those relating to effective assistance of counsel, in light of Van Hook. Examination of the impact of Booker, Gall, and other decisions such as O'Brien on not only federal guidelines, but on state sentencing systems as well. Emphasis on the continuing struggle with rules of discovery, both as a constitutional matter, and as a matter of court rules, both federal and state. The Court's apparent expansion of the right to counsel, in Rothgery and other cases, and the belief, among commentators, that Rothgery will, in the near future, be expanded to reach appointed counsel. The Court's willingness, as seen in Padilla v. Kentucky, to impose on counsel, but not on judges, the duty to provide defendants prior to entry of a guilty plea of important information on collateral matters.
