Jack Balkin Elected to the American Law Institute
Jack M. Balkin, the Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School, has been elected to the American Law Institute (ALI). The new class includes 38 members who bring a range of perspectives and areas of expertise to ALI’s work of clarifying, modernizing, and improving the law.
“It has been a challenging and unsettling few months for all of us,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “Despite all of the uncertainty, the work of the Institute continues, and is perhaps needed now more than ever. It is with great pride that I welcome this newest group of superbly qualified members who are sure to provide unique insight to our Restatement, Principles, and Model Code projects.”
Balkin’s specialties are constitutional law and technology law. He is the founder and director of the Law School’s Information Society Project, an interdisciplinary center that studies law and new information technologies. He also directs the Law School’s Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression, and the Knight Law and Media Program.
Balkin is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the author of over 130 articles and the author or editor of twelve books. This year he will publish two more books, The Cycles of Constitutional Time (Oxford University Press), and What Obergefell v. Hodges Should Have Said (Yale University Press).
