Known as the Institute of Law Research and Reform until 1990, the Alberta Law Reform Institute was established by an agreement between the provincial government, the Law Society of Alberta and the University of Alberta. Its principal objective is to promote law reform, particularly on the provincial level, and to conduct research in conjunction with its reform activities. Many of the Institute's reports have been or are in the process of being enacted for legislation. Staff periodically publish papers prompted directly or indirectly by law reform projects. Directors: 1968-1975 Wilbur Fee Bowker; 1975-1986 William H. Hurlburt; 1986-1988 R. Grant Hammond; 1988- Peter J.M. Lown.
