HeinOnline’s ALI Library

by guest author Dan Brackmann

Did you know HeinOnline offers a whole library of American Law Institute (ALI) related content? ALI is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law. The Institute is made up of lawyers, judges, and law professors of the highest qualifications. It drafts, discusses, revises, and publishes Restatements of the Law, model statutes, and Principles of the Law that are enormously influential in the courts and legislatures, as well as in legal scholarship and education.

Once approved by the Council and by the ALI mem­bership at an Annual Meeting, they represent the most current state­ment of ALI’s position on a subject.
