Burns Elected to Membership in the American Law Institute
“I am thrilled,” Burns stated. “It is a truly a distinct honor to join the ALI. More than perhaps any other entity, the ALI has contributed to the development of American law in a way that respects our legal traditions, system of government, and above all the American people. I couldn’t be happier.”
The American Law Institute is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and improve the law. ALI drafts, discusses, revises, and publishes Restatements of the Law, Model Codes, and Principles of Law that are enormously influential in the courts and legislatures, as well as in legal scholarship and education.
By participating in the Institute’s work, ALI members influence the development of the law in both existing and emerging areas, work with other eminent lawyers, judges, and academics, to give back to a profession to which they are deeply dedicated, and contribute to the public good.
