The 87th Annual Meeting of the American Law Institute was called to order this morning by President Roberta Cooper Ramo. After the traditional opening remarks by the President of the American Bar Association, Carolyn B. Lamm, ALI Director Lance Liebman announced two new projects on which the ALI will soon begin work, on Election Law and Insurance Law. Director Liebman also noted that even though the third wave of Restatements has not yet been completed, it won’t be long before the Institute begins work on the Restatements (Fourth).
