The American Law Institute Elects 58 New Members

The American Law Institute has elected 58 new members who will bring their expertise in several areas of law to ALI’s work of clarifying the law through Restatements, Principles and the Model Penal Codes. Members were selected from confidential nominations submitted by ALI members for the March 15, 2017, deadline. Membership proposals received thereafter and prior to the June 15 deadline will be considered in the fall.

University of Chicago Law School professors Daniel Abebe and Douglas Baird were elected as part of the 2017 group. 

“I am very pleased to have these remarkable judges, practitioners, and academics join our engaged group of distinguished and thoughtful members,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “I look forward to working with them as we continue The American Law Institute’s important work on Restatements of the Law, Principles of Law, the Model Penal Code and the UCC.”

Election of these new members raises ALI's total number of elected members to 2,871. Visit the Newly Elected Members page to view biographical sketches of the new members.
