An independent organization that produces scholarly works to aid interpretation and understanding of the law has elected University of Wyoming Law Professor Noah Novogrodsky to serve as a member.

Novogrodsky is the Carl M. Williams Professor of Law and Ethics and director of the Center for International Human Rights Law and Advocacy, which he co-founded at the College of Law with Visiting Professor Robert J. Golten in 2010.

The American Law Institute (ALI) brings together leading professionals to collaborate on works that seek to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law and promote the administration of justice. The organization’s restatements, codes, and principles have been used in the legal profession, legislatures, and courts.

According to its annual report, ALI has long been influential internationally, and in recent years, more of its work has become international in scope. It collaborates with numerous international law organizations and served as a model for the European Law Institute founded in 2011.

Novogrodsky teaches International Human Rights Law, Public International Law, Immigration Law, and Civil Procedure. He has been a Visiting Professor at Georgetown University Law Center and the University of Connecticut School of Law and a Visiting Scholar at the University of California-Berkeley School of Law. His scholarship focuses on international criminal justice and transnational human rights.

The American Law Institute elected College of Law Professor Jacquelyn Bridgeman as a member earlier this year.
