Annual Meeting Proceedings

The Proceedings volumes are edited transcripts of Annual Meetings. They are published about a year after a particular Meeting. Before preparation of the final transcript, project Reporters and scheduled speakers are given the opportunity to revise and correct their remarks. Although it is impracticable to afford this opportunity to the numerous unscheduled individuals who speak at a Meeting, the entire transcript is carefully reviewed and obvious lapses in syntax are corrected throughout.

There are no shipping or handling charges on Proceedings orders placed by ALI members. 

Proceedings of all Annual Meetings are available on microfiche from the William S. Hein Company and on HeinOnline. Proceedings from 2000 onward are available via Westlaw.
