Abbe R. Gluck ’00 Named Adviser for American Law Institute Publication

The American Law Institute has named Abbe R. Gluck ’00, Professor of Law and Faculty Director of the Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy, an adviser for the institute’s new publication, Restatement of the Law Third, Torts: Concluding Provisions.

Advisers are subject matter experts recommended to the American Law Institute’s Council by its reporters, director, and deputy director. As an adviser, Gluck joins a group of more than 40 scholars and legal practitioners who have committed to reviewing drafts of the publication and providing input to reporters.

Torts: Concluding Provisions will address medical liability, vicarious liability, wrongful death, survival actions, and other topics not addressed in the previous edition, plus topics updated from the last publication.

In 2018, Gluck was elected to the American Law Institute’s Council, the organization’s governing body.

The American Law Institute is an independent organization producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and improve the law. The ALI drafts, discusses, revises, and publishes Restatements of the Law, Model Codes, and Principles of Law that influence the courts and legislatures as well as legal scholarship and education.
