In this summary, Reporters Kermit Roosevelt III, Laura E. Little, and Christopher A. Whytock provide an overview of Tentative Draft No. 1 (2020) of Restatement of the Law Third, Conflict of Laws, which contains parts of Chapter 1, Introduction; Chapter 2, Domicile; and Chapter 5, Choice of Law.

This project was on the 2020 Annual Meeting agenda before the Meeting was cancelled due to COVID-19. Accordingly, this text has not been considered by the membership of The American Law Institute and therefore does not represent the position of the Institute on any of the issues with which it deals. This supplement may be revised or supplemented prior to consideration by the membership in May 2021.
