ALI Elects 61 New Members

The American Law Institute has elected 60 new members. These highly regarded judges, lawyers, and law professors will bring a wide range of perspectives and areas of expertise to ALI’s work of clarifying the law through Restatements, Principles, and Model Codes.

“I have the great luck of welcoming each class of new members,” said ALI President Roberta Cooper Ramo. “Each group of lawyers, accomplished in their own fields and professions, brings new experience and new perspectives to our work of clarifying the law. I look forward to greeting our new members as I hand over the gavel to Dean Levi in May.”
