The American Law Institute has elected a new member — a professor at the Notre Dame Law School.
Notre Dame Law School Professor Samuel Bray was recently elected as a new member of the American Law Institute.
Professor Bray joined the Notre Dame Law School faculty in 2018 — and his primary areas of research are remedies, equity and constitutional law. Professor Bray is also a faculty fellow of both the law school’s Program on Private Law and its Religious Liberty Initiative. He has testified before the Senate judiciary committee, the House judiciary committee, and the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States.
The American Law Institute, established in 1923, is most known for its creation of restatements of various areas of the law. As a new member of the American Law Institute, he will have the opportunity to work with other eminent lawyers, judges, and academics to serve the legal profession and contribute to the public good.
“It’s an honor to be elected and join the company of so many learned and dedicated judges, lawyers, and scholars,” Professor Bray said.
“The work of the American Law Institute is relied on every day in courtrooms around the United States as a faithful description of what the law is. That fidelity is the source and sum of its authority.”
