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." To that end, the ALI has held annual meetings since its inception to adopt its restatements and other codification projects, discuss drafts, analyze pending legislation and aspects of the law, set policy, and initialize new projects. The collection, 1923-1995, includes correspondence, addresses and remarks, reports on codification projects and other ALI-related activity, annual meeting programs, yearbooks, proceedings, and related records regarding activity at the ALI's annual meetings.

In the course of establishing what would become the First Restatement of the Law, the American Law Institute (ALI) considered including a clarification of the Law of Evidence. However, due to perceived deficiencies in the law, the American Law Institute resolved to begin a project that would provide a thorough reworking of the existing law of evidence. In 1939, the ALI secured funding to develop such a project. Edmund M. Morgan served as Reporter, and John H. Wigmore served as Chief Consultant. The resulting body of law was the Model Code of Evidence, adopted by the ALI in May 1942. The collection, 1939-1954, includes correspondence, meeting minutes, drafts, memoranda, commentary, outside publications, and related material concerning the drafting and adoption of the Model Code of Evidence, an effort to standardize common-law evidence rules.

Creator:

Extent: 5.3 linear feet
In the late 1960s, the American Bar Association's Committee on Federal Regulation of Securities recommended that a codification of securities law be undertaken by the American Law Institute (ALI). The ALI approved the project, appointing Louis Loss as the reporter in 1969. The purpose of the project was to analyze, integrate, and improve an array of federal acts related to securities law. The American Bar Association played an active role in reviewing and advising the committee on its work. The ALI approved the Federal Securities Code on May 19, 1978. Loss continued working with the project's consultants, advisers, and other interested parties to prepare a final draft of commentary on the code. Although the ALI assumed no responsibility for Loss's comments, the organization authorized the publication of a Reporter's Commentary with the Federal Securities Code in 1980. The collection, 1968-1981, includes correspondence, meeting records, drafts, and other materials relating to the drafting of the Federal Securities Code, a project that sought to simplify and consolidate the law as it related to financial securities.

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." To that end, the ALI has held annual meetings since its inception to adopt its restatements and other codification projects, discuss drafts, analyze pending legislation and aspects of the law, set policy, and initialize new projects. The collection, 1923-1995, includes correspondence, addresses and remarks, reports on codification projects and other ALI-related activity, annual meeting programs, yearbooks, proceedings, and related records regarding activity at the ALI's annual meetings.

Extent: 1 linear foot (12 items)
John Dickinson was born in Greensboro, Maryland in 1894. He was a descendent of John Dickinson, who drafted the Articles of Confederation. After teaching American and Medieval history, Dickinson earned his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1919. That same year, he enrolled at Harvard Law School, where he received his LL.B. degree in 1921. At the time, Dickinson practiced law in New York and Los Angeles. He also was a noted writer, publishing his Administrative Law and the Supremacy of Nations in 1927. A pioneering work in administrative law, the book is widely regarded as a legal classic. After stints teaching at Harvard and Princeton, Dickinson accepted an offer to teach at the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1929, where he remained until his resignation in 1948. Dickinson taught on a range of topics, including constitutional law and medieval theory. He continued to write articles and books. At the time of his sudden death in 1952, Dickinson was undergoing a study of Western thought from Hellenic Greece to modern times. The project included a detailed analysis of Roman law and institutions. The collection probably dates from the early to mid-1940s. The 12 notebooks include handwritten and typewritten excerpts from books related to Roman law, as well as Dickinson's own notes on the subject. Dickinson was writing a book on Roman law at this time.

This project constitutes a report to the Institute rather than by the Institute. The first volume details the legal and social concerns that gave rise to the study in the mid-1980s, and distills contemporary scholarship dealing with how well various institutions—prominently, but not exclusively, tort litigation—have performed in addressing the human and economic problems created by personal injuries. The second volume undertakes an in-depth analysis of those facets of the tort system that have proved especially troublesome in recent years and presents the Reporters’ judgments about how the tort system should evolve in the future. The collection, 1985-1992, includes correspondence with foundations and other agencies who funded the project, correspondence with project members and other interested parties, reports submitted to Council, consultants and advisers, and publications of the study.
