American Law Institute names new director
The ALI has had just a handful of directors in its 91-year history, each of them giants in the law. Prof. Lance Liebman, former dean of the Columbia Law School, has served for the past fifteen years. Today, the ALI names a new director, Prof. Ricky Revesz, former dean of NYU Law School. The press release is here.
This is exciting news for this prestigious organization (on whose governing council I am privileged to serve), an organization that continues to be involved in an enormous range of projects involving contemporary law, including torts, foreign relations law, sentencing, sexual assault and native American law.
