    04.29.15 Professor Miriam Baer Named ALI Adviser
    Professor Miriam Baer

    Professor Miriam Baer has been invited by the American Law institute (ALI) to serve as an adviser on the upcoming project “Principles of the Law, Compliance, Enforcement, and Risk Management for Corporations, Nonprofits, and Other Organizations.”

    Contributors to ALI projects influence the development of the law in both existing and emerging areas. A project is undertaken by the Institute only upon the careful consideration and prior approval of its Officers and Council. The draft of the project is prepared by one or more Reporters and Associate Reporters, usually distinguished academics, with input from a diverse group of Advisers, ALI members and Council.

    Professor James Fanto will serve as an Associate reporter on this project. “Professor Baer is in a distinguished advisory group of academics, judges and practitioners," he said.

    According to the ALI, “the target audience for this project includes outside counsel specializing in the areas of compliance and risk management; in-house attorneys, compliance officers, and other personnel who carry out internal control responsibilities; government regulators and prosecutors; and commentators, scholars, and people involved in law reform initiatives. The project will be divided into four parts: compliance, enforcement, risk management, and governance.”

    Professor Baer’s recent article “Confronting the Two Faces of Corporate Fraud” (originally published in Florida Law Review) was identified by Robert Rosen as one of the best works of recent scholarship relating to corporate law, and reviewed in Jotwell: The Journal of Things We Like (Lots).
