On the Restatement of Laws

From new PrawfsBlawg contributor Orly Lobel:

The most fundamental questions concern the goals and authority of restating a particular field of law.... These questions relate to yet another important debate: who is the primary consumer for which a restatement is privately codified, through the vote by the thousands of distinguished members of the ALI? (at the panel, one participant suggested that the primary consumer of a restatement is the “feeble minded, weak and fearful state judge”)
