On reading a newsletter that just arrived by snailmail, I was delighted to see the names of 3 IntLawGrrls contributors in the list of new members to the 93-year-old American Law Institute; in its own words, “the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and improve the law.” A glance at the Institute’s site revealed that a couple other ‘Grrls also have been welcomed to ALI membership in the last year.
Heartfelt congratulations to these newly elected:
