American Law Institute

The American Law Institute (ALI) is a nonprofit organization created to clarify, simplify and improve the law.

The ALI is probably best know for producing the Restatement of the Law series. They have also produced the Model Penal Code, the Principles of Corporate Governance: Analysis and Recommendations and many other valuable publications. The ALI co-produced the Uniform Commercial Code with the National conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws and is the "ALI" in "ALI-ABA," which produces Continuing Legal Education programs and publications.

The ALI web site posts more information about the ALI and a catalog of all current ALI publications. For questions, call the ALI (800-253-6397). For questions about ALI materials, call the ALI and ask for either Customer Service or the Library.

Annual Proceedings of the American Law Institute are available on Westlaw (ALI-PROCEED).

The subscription-based "American Law Institute Library" on HeinOnline includes Annual Reports, Proceedings, Annual Meeting Speeches, The ALI Reporter, drafts of the Uniform Commercial Code and archival material regarding the Restatement of Torts, 2d and the Model Penal Code.

The archives of the ALI are stored in the University of Pennsylvania's Biddle Law Library.
