Draft Types in the American Law Institute Library
Tentative Drafts and Proposed Final Drafts are included in this database upon their publication. Once approved by the Council and by the ALI membership at an Annual Meeting, Tentative Drafts and Proposed Final Drafts represent the most current statement of ALI’s position on a subject and may be cited in opinions or briefs in accordance with Bluebook rule 12.9.4 until the official text is published.
The material in Preliminary Drafts and Council Drafts is subject to significant change during the project development process. Thus, these Drafts are not included in this database until six months following the completion of a project, when they are made available by ALI for archival purposes only.
