Professor Kent Greenfield is among the sixty-one newly elected members of the American Law Institute (ALI). They are tasked with leveraging their expertise in various areas of law to contribute to the ALI’s efforts in clarifying legal matters through Restatements, Principles, and Model Codes.

“An organization can only last as long as ALI has and can only produce work as influential as our projects through the hard work and dedication of members like ours,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “I am pleased to announce this new class of members and look forward to working with them on our work as we begin our second century.”

Greenfield, a scholar of constitutional law and corporate governance, has lectured at 139 institutions, founded the Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights (FAIR), and is an active participant in litigation matters pertaining to civil rights and corporate accountability.

Greenfield has made significant contributions to legal literature, as he has written three trade books and two online casebooks and published articles and essays in prominent publications and leading legal journals. His expertise and insights make him a sought-after public commentator, frequently appearing on CNN, MSNBC, NPR, BBC, Fox, and Al Jazeera.   

Professor Greenfield is the Dean’s Distinguished Scholar and recipient of four Boston College teaching awards.
