Breakfast Meeting

koppel-glenAt a breakfast this morning, ALI Director Richard Revesz reported on the projects currently underway.  Particularly noteworthy among his remarks were two developments. First, the role of “restatement” and “principles” projects were recently clarified.  “Restatements” are directed to the courts and “principles” projects are directed to other government agencies and departments as well as nongovernment entities. Second, to increase the productivity of the ALI, associate reporters will be assigned to work on particular segments of a project at the same time, under the aegis of the Reporter, so that work on all segments of a project will proceed simultaneously, thereby shortening the time required to complete the entire project.
