The American Law Institute was organized in 1923 following a study conducted by a group of prominent American judges, lawyers, and teachers known as The Committee on the Establishment of a Permanent Organization for the Improvement of the Law. The Committee's recommendation that a lawyers' organization be formed to improve the law and its administration led to the creation of The American Law Institute. Its incorporators included Chief Justice and former President William Howard Taft, future Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes and former Secretary of State Elihu Root.
