In the mid-1950s, lawyers, judges and jurists met in New York to discuss ALI`s potential work on a project in the field of foreign relations law. Adrian S. Fisher, a reporter for the Future Project, noted that at the time of its introduction, this reformulation contained two themes that did not exist in previous reprocessing. First, foreign relations law was more the concern of the government lawyer and less the concern of the private lawyer than any of the other areas covered by a new presentation.
Second, for this work to have lasting value, it had to be convincing to lawyers in other countries.

Reformulation of the (third) Foreign Relations Act § 1 (Am. Droit Inst. 1987). The Restatement Fourth of U.S. Foreign Relations Law deals with the American approach in three areas of foreign relations law with restrictions: Anthea Roberts serves as rapporteur for the reformulation (fourth) of the Foreign Relations Law of the United States. This project updates the highly influential Restatement (Third) of the Foreign Relations Law of the United States, published by the American Law Institute in 1987. The reformulation includes both international law, as it applies to the United States and the United States, and national law, which has a significant impact on foreign relations or international law.
Anthea is the first foreign academic ever appointed as a journalist for an American reprocessing project. It is precisely these two obstacles that have made ALI the right organization to compile a study on the benefits of understanding foreign relations law. The institute possessed a degree of objectivity and distance that no government group could possess, and inviting lawyers from other countries to participate in the drafting of the reformulation helped preserve the institute`s reputation for having a variety of experiences from the best legal minds. The result of these efforts was the second reprocessing of the United States.
