Washington and Lee University School of Law and the American Law Institute are pleased to sponsor a conference, Restitution Rollout: Restatement (Third) of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment, on February 25, 2011 in Lexington, Virginia.
The American Law Institute (ALI), the leading legal-reform organization in the United States, restates basic legal subjects to inform the legal profession what "the law" is in a particular subject. In 2010, the ALI approved the Restatement (Third) Restitution and Unjust Enrichment (2011), the subject of our Restitution Rollout.
Restatement Third restores the full title, Restitution and Unjust Enrichment, that appeared on the Tentative Drafts of the original Restatement but was dropped when the official text was published, thus emphasizing that the subject matter encompasses the independent body of law of unjust enrichment, and not simply the remedy of restitution.
At the conference, ALI Reporter Andrew Kull and ALI Director Lance Liebman will introduce the Restatement Third of Restitution. They will be joined by leading Restitution and Contracts scholars including Joe Perillo, Lionel Smith, Peter Linzer, and Caprice Roberts, among others.
Sponsored by the W&L Frances Lewis Law Center, the American Law Institute, and the W&L Law Review. CLE credit available.
