On June 1, the European Law Institute hosted its Decennial Celebration. The event was opened by Christiane Wendehorst (ELI President), and Reinhard Zimmermann (Speaker of the ELI Senate), who reflected on the making of ELI from its humble beginnings with 52 Founding Members to its current ever growing Membership of over 1,600 Individual and Institutional Members. Lance Liebman (former Director of The American Law Institute (ALI)), reminisced about guiding ELI to its establishment and the good working relationship of the ALI and ELI ever since.

At the 2021 ALI Annual Meeting, members voted to approve Tentative Draft No. 2 of ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy. While the work was conducted jointly, each organization followed its respective approval processes. For the ALI, with the approval of this draft, the project Reporters are authorized to correct and update citations and other references, to make editorial and stylistic improvements, and to implement any remaining substantive changes agreed to during discussion with the ALI membership or by motions approved at the Annual Meeting. The ELI is scheduled to vote on this project later this year.
