Lynn Slade, a shareholder at Modrall Sperling and Co-Chair of the Native American Law practice, is a newly elected member of The American Law Institute (ALI). Lynn has received national recognition "as a market leader in this field" from Chambers USA in Native American Law. He was named Lawyer of the Year 2012 in both Native American Law and Natural Resources Law in Albuquerque by Best Lawyers in America®, and was Lawyer of the Year in Energy Law – Albuquerque in 2011.
The American Law Institute is the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law. The Institute (made up of over 4,300 lawyers, judges, and law professors of the highest qualifications) drafts, discusses, revises, and publishes Restatements of the Law, model statutes, and principles of law that are enormously influential in the courts and legislatures, as well as in legal scholarship and education. ALI has long been influential internationally and, in recent years, more of its work has become international in scope.
By participating in the Institute's work, its distinguished members have the opportunity to influence the development of the law in both existing and emerging areas, to work with other eminent lawyers, judges, and academics, to give back to a profession to which they are deeply dedicated, and to contribute to the public good.
