“We are so pleased that Diane Wood will be our new Director and so confident in our future under her leadership,” said ALI President David F.

From academia to private practice to government service to her time on the court, she is a brilliant legal thinker and has made her mark on many fields, including antitrust and international law.  She is also a skillful leader and trusted colleague. She has been a forceful and important contributor to the work of the ALI through her membership on the ALI’s Council for many years.  As we enter our second century, we are so fortunate to be able to work with her as ALI Director.”
