About the Uniform Law Commission
The Uniform Law Commission, founded in 1892, is composed of Commissioners from each state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The ULC studies and reviews the law of the states to determine which areas of law should be uniform. The Commissioners promote the principle of uniformity by drafting and proposing specific statutes in areas of the law where uniformity between the states is desirable.
