Summary
  • The Third Restatement of the Law Records, 1973-2003, include drafts, comments, correspondence, and other records related to Agency, Employment Law, Foreign Relations Law, the Law Governing Lawyers, Property, Restitution, Suretyship, Torts, Trusts, and Unfair Competition
  • The American Law Institute (ALI) was founded in 1923 in response to a perceived uncertainty and complexity in American law. Former Penn Law Dean William Draper Lewis was the Institute's first director, running the organization's operations out of his campus office. The ALI was conceived as a representative gathering of the American Bar (including Judges, Lawyers, and Law Professors) for the stated mission "to promote the clarification and simplification of the law and its better adaptation to social needs, to secure the better administration of justice and to encourage and carry on scholarly and scientific legal work." The Third Restatement of the Law covered subjects including Foreign Relations Law and the Law Governing Lawyers. The collection, 1973-2003, includes drafts, comments, correspondence, and other materials related to the Third Restatement of the Law, which sought to improve and expand upon the first and second codification projects by the American Law Institute
Biographical or historical data
The Third Restatement of the Law includes a revision of the Second Restatement of Foreign Relations Law and a new restatement concerning the Law Governing Lawyers. As of December 2007, the Third Restatement of the Law is an ongoing project. Records will be processed as they become available.
