          Professor William S. Dodge Named Reporter for Restatement (Fourth) of Foreign Relations Law

          UC Hastings College of the Law Professor William S. Dodge has been named one of eight reporters for the American Law Institute’s Restatement (Fourth) of Foreign Relations Law, a major reference work for lawyers, judges, and scholars on international and foreign relations law. Professor Dodge will work with some of the most influential scholars in the field on this significant undertaking.

          The multi-year project will begin with three topics: Jurisdiction and Enforcement; Treaties; and Sovereign Immunity. Professor Dodge, a leading authority on extraterritorial jurisdiction, has been asked to focus on Jurisdiction and Enforcement.

          “For those of us who work in the areas of international law and foreign relations law, the Restatement (Third) of Foreign Relations Law is often the first book we turn to, and it will be a privilege to work on its successor,” said Dodge. He explained that a lot has happened since the Third Restatement appeared in 1987, citing the Supreme Court’s revival of the presumption against extraterritoriality as just one example. “Some issues are bound to be contentious,” said Dodge, “but the ALI has chosen a group of reporters who are committed to working collaboratively to find common ground.”

          “Appointment as a Reporter of an ALI Restatement is the pinnacle of achievement for a law professor,” said Richard Marcus, Professor of Law and the Horace O. Coil ('57) Chair in Litigation. “Usually only the most senior and eminent professors are entrusted with such an important task.  Professor Dodge's appointment recognizes that he is a luminary in the field. He will play a crucial role in fashioning the core legal propositions that will dominate discussion for the next 30 years. UC Hastings is tremendously proud of Professor Dodge’s well-deserved recognition.”

          A member of the UC Hastings faculty since 1995, Professor Dodge recently served as Counselor on International Law to the Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State. Upon his return to UC Hastings, he became Associate Dean for Research. Professor Dodge is a coauthor of the casebook Transnational Business Problems (4th ed. Foundation Press 2008) and a coeditor of International Law in the U.S. Supreme Court: Continuity and Change (Cambridge University Press 2011), which won the American Society of International Law's 2012 certificate of merit.

          UC Hastings College of the Law boasts an especially large number of faculty members who have been elected into the ALI. Nearly a third of the faculty are members of the prestigious Institute. Professors Mary Kay Kane and Geoffrey C. Hazard, Jr., are members of the ALI Council. Professor Hazard served as Director of the ALI from 1984-1999.
