Oona Hathaway Elected Member of The American Law Institute
Oona A. Hathaway ’97, Gerard C. and Bernice Latrobe Smith Professor of International Law and Counselor to the Dean, has been elected to The American Law Institute (ALI). The new class includes 58 members who bring a wide range of perspectives and areas of expertise to ALI’s work of clarifying the law through restatements, principles, and model penal codes.
The American Law Institute is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and improve the law.
“I am very pleased to have these remarkable judges, practitioners, and academics join our engaged group of distinguished and thoughtful members,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “I look forward to working with them as we continue The American Law Institute’s important work.”
The election of these new members raises ALI’s total number of elected members to 2,871.
Professor Hathaway’s current research focuses on the foundations of modern international law, the intersection of U.S. constitutional law and international law, the enforcement of international law, and the law of armed conflict. She is a principal investigator on a recent grant awarded by Hewlett Foundation to study cyber conflict. She has published more than twenty-five law review articles, and she is the co-author of The Internationalists: How a Radical Plan to Outlaw War Remade the World (with Scott Shapiro).
In 2014-15, she took leave from Yale Law School to serve as Special Counsel to the General Counsel for National Security Law at the U.S. Department of Defense, where she was awarded the Office of the Secretary of Defense Award for Excellence.
