At the adjournment of the 2017 Annual Meeting, Dean David F. Levi of Duke Law School assumed the role of ALI President. He was elected to this role by ALI’s Council in January 2016. President Levi has been an active member of ALI for more than 25 years, serving on the Council for more than 10 years. As president, he will chair the Executive Committee of the ALI Council, preside at the Annual Meeting, and serve as a member of nearly all standing committees.
“I am delighted to have David as my successor,” said Roberta Cooper Ramo, who will now serve as ALI’s Chair of the Council. “He is a brilliant legal mind and a proven leader who has great passion for the mission of The American Law Institute.”
