American Law Institute Elects B&D Chairman Ben Wilson as Member

The American Law Institute (ALI), an independent organization "producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law," elected B&D Chairman Ben Wilson (Washington, DC) as a member of its October 2020 class.

The ALI's elected membership consists of judges, lawyers, and law professors from all across the United States and from many other countries, selected on the basis of professional achievement and demonstrated interest in improving the law. The courts have come to trust and rely on ALI’s work due to its careful drafting process, its independence and integrity, and the intellectual caliber of those who participate in the Institute’s projects.

The election of an individual begins with a confidential nomination by an ALI member that is supported by two additional ALI members. Members are encouraged to propose individuals who have demonstrated excellence in the law, are of high character, will contribute to the work of the Institute, and are committed to its mission.
