Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP Partner Raymond Tolentino has been elected as a new member of The American Law Institute (ALI). The ALI, comprised of eminent judges, lawyers, and law professors, is the “leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law.” Members drafts, discuss, revise, and publish Restatements of the Law, Model Codes, and Principles of Law, which are influential in the courts and legislatures, as well as in legal scholarship and education.

In announcing new members, ALI President David F. Levi said, “For the past 100 years, The American Law Institute has aspired to strengthen and improve the legal system. Our greatest asset has always been our extraordinary members’ dedication of time, intellect, and energy to our projects. As we close out this 100th Anniversary year and enter the Institute’s second century, I look forward to seeing the ways in which this class will continue our tradition of excellence in promoting and protecting the rule of law.”
