Restatements are essentially common law judge-made doctrines that develop gradually over time because of the principle of stare decisis. Although Restatements are not binding authority in and of themselves, they are highly persuasive because they are formulated over several years with extensive input from law professors, practicing attorneys, and judges. The Restatements of the Law is one of the most respected and well-used sources of secondary authority, covering nearly every area of common law.
