Project Spotlight: Restatement of the Law Third, Torts: Concluding Provisions

We think that one can only understand how the project titled “Restatement Third of Torts: Concluding Provisions” came about and what it will address with some background about the Third Restatement of Torts. So, this profile might more appropriately be titled, “A Brief History of the Third Restatement of Torts.”

Completing the Restatement Third of Torts

At its January meeting, the Council approved the launch of the final three components of the Restatement Third of Torts. The projects tentatively are titled: Remedies; Defamation and Privacy; and Concluding Provisions. With these projects, the ALI aims to complete an effort that began nearly three decades ago, when we started work on the Restatement of the Law Third, Torts: Products Liability. And when these projects are completed, the ALI will have produced a body of work that entirely supersedes the Restatement Second of Torts.
