“From the Restatement of Contracts to Sexual Offenses, Election Procedures, Torts and Other Controversies: 100 years of the American Law Institute”

Judge Lee Rosenthal, United States District Judge for the District Court for the Southern District of Texas, and Professor Harvey Perlman, Harvey & Susan Perlman Alumni Professor of Law, are members of the Council of the American Law Institute which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. They will discuss how the scope of ALI projects has expanded beyond traditional Restatements to projects directed at more controversial subjects. Recent projects include redrafting of the sexual offenses contained in the Model Penal Code, principles related to election administration, policing, and international transactions as well as a wholesale revision of the Restatement of Torts. They will highlight some of the resulting recommendations of the ALI in these areas as well as the debates leading up to them.

This talk has been approved for 1.0 continuing legal education credit.
