As we enter our second century, we will build on our strengths–the caliber of the people who do our work, the collaborative culture and civil discussions that fuel its creation and finalization, and our proven process–to ensure we are responsive to an ever-changing world. This important, challenging undertaking will require hard work and substantial resources.
Your gift to the Second Century Campaign will allow us to:
Continue to reexamine areas of the law to respond to change, updating our influential work to ensure that ALI projects remain relied upon by courts, practitioners, and society.
Examine areas of the law not yet studied by ALI that are at the forefront of legal discourse, such as Data Privacy, Corporate Compliance, Policing, and Student Sexual Misconduct, to provide guidance on these critically important and often divisive issues.
Continue to work on Restatements, Principles, and Model Codes that have been identified as areas in need of clarification or reform, and that will provide great legal and societal benefit, but provide no financial gain to ALI.
Respond more quickly, through reports or whitepapers, to provide judges and practitioners a way of understanding and organizing rapidly developing fields of law.
Coordinate legal rules and facilitate cooperation across borders by working with organizations in other countries to create transnational legal principles.
Eliminate barriers to participation in our work, ensuring that our membership remains diverse and broad, and that there are no financial obstacles to participating in our process.
Help under-resourced state courts handle the broad range of cases they encounter by providing free access to our Restatements, Principles, and Model Codes.
