Professor Samuel Bray elected to the American Law Institute | News | Law School
Samuel Bray, a professor at Notre Dame Law School, was recently elected as a new member of the American Law Institute.
The American Law Institute is best known for creating restatements of various areas of law. As Institute members develop these and similar resources in existing and emerging fields, they have the opportunity to work with other leading lawyers, judges, and scholars, to serve the legal profession, and to contribute to the public good.
Bray joined the faculty of Notre Dame Law School in 2018. His primary areas of research are remedies, equity, and constitutional law, and he writes and speaks frequently on national injunctions and other equitable remedies. He is a faculty member of the Law School’s Private Law Program and its Religious Freedom Initiative. He has testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, and the Presidential Commission of the United States Supreme Court.
“It is an honor to be elected and to join the company of so many learned and dedicated judges, lawyers and scholars,” Bray said. “The work of the American Law Institute is invoked every day in courtrooms across the United States as a faithful description of what the law is. This faithfulness is the source and the sum of its authority.
Bray is currently an advisor on Restatement (Third) of Torts: Remedies.
