During its May 2022 meeting, Members of the American Law Institute (ALI) will consider revisions to the Model Penal Code approved by the ALI Council last week.
“ALI members must vote upon the version of the Model Penal Code approved by the ALI Council,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “The ALI members will do this during their annual meeting which is scheduled to take place on May 16 through May 18 in Washington, D.C. If ALI members do not agree to what their Council has approved, we cannot start the long and arduous process of making change happen possibly in all 50 states and in the federal government.”
ACSOL members are encouraged to send letters soon to ALI to voice their support for the Model Penal Code that was already approved by the ALI Council. Ask that ALI’s members approve them at their meeting May 16 through 18.
Letters can be sent by email to
