Kathleen DeLaney has been elected to The American Law Institute (ALI). ALI is the leading independent organization in the United States that produces scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law. The Institute drafts, discusses, revises, and publishes Restatements of the Law, model statutes, and principles of law that are influential in the courts and legislatures, as well as in legal scholarship and education. Her election to the ALI was featured in an article "New Members of the American Law Institute Bring Engery and Diversity," which was published by the Indiana Lawyer on May 21, 2014. Kathleen was quoted in the article, stating, "[I]f we can make the Restatements an accessible resource so that people can understand them when they read them and they're not full of acrane legalese, I think those are good aspirational goals to have which could have the added benefit of making the legal process more accessible and understandable." The article was also featured on The American Law Institute's website at www.ali.org. Full copy of the article here.
