This paper was delivered in October as the inaugural Hon. Stephanie K. Seymour Lecture at the University of Tulsa College of Law. The lecture addresses the issue of finding a meaningful definition of discretion in judicial decisionmaking, using the lens of current issues in federal sentencing law as a working example for the review of discretion in practice.
