ALI-ABA: A History of the Highest Quality Continuing Legal Education
In 1947, the American Bar Association (ABA) and the American Law Institute (ALI)* formed the American Law Institute-American Bar Association Committee on Continuing Professional Education (ALI-ABA). This was the first national provider of CLE programs. Its goal was to provide high-quality, post-admission education to the practicing bar. For over 65 years ALI-ABA provided thousands of legal seminars and publications to lawyers across the country. The organization became known for its extensive programming across a wide variety of practice areas.
In 2012, by mutual agreement, the ABA and ALI decided to move forward separately in their law education efforts. It was agreed that the nationally recognized expert faculty and abundant intellectual content of ALI-ABA would be absorbed into ALI CLE. Today, ALI CLE carries on the tradition of excellence envisioned in 1947, but with a new generation of offerings and technology platforms to meet the educational needs of the 21st century lawyer.
