Historical Background

The Uniform Law Commission (ULC), formerly known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL), was established in 1892. The Uniform Law Commission provides states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that brings clarity and stability to critical areas of state statutory law. Members of the Uniform Law Commission must be lawyers, qualified to practice law. They are practicing lawyers, judges, legislators and legislative staff and law professors, who have been appointed by the fifty states as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to research, draft and promote enactment of uniform state laws in areas of state law where uniformity is desirable and practical. The Uniform Law Commission is a state-supported organization that provides true value to the states, in the form of well-drafted legislation which brings clarity and and stability to law, a service that most states could not otherwise afford or duplicate.


Contents of the Collection

The collection contains Uniform Law Commission's administrative files, committee papers, and a variety of working materials related to and used in studying, drafting, and revising uniform state laws. They include but are not limited to correspondence, meeting documents, conference proceedings, reports, working and final drafts, publications, press releases, notes, programs, and research and legislative materials.

The Uniform Law Commission Archives consists of materials collected by multiple Uniform Law Commissioners. The finding aids indicate the compiler of each folder, specifying the origin of the materials.


Arrangement of the Collection

The collection is organized into two main groups: Acts and Committees.
The Acts group contains materials related to individual, alphabetically arranged uniform and model acts. The Uniform Commercial Code is further separated by article. In some instances, a single document references multiple acts. Please see the Related Materials section of each finding aid for any additional documents that can be found in other portions of the collection.
The Committees group contains work product of several committees and joint editorial boards of the Uniform Law Commission. Additionally, the Executive Committee Papers include general ULC materials like annual meeting programs and publications about uniform laws. Committee materials such as correspondence and meeting documents can also be found within individual acts to which they relate. Please refer to the finding aids in the Acts group to discover committee materials that reference a specific act.
