What is the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL)?

Also known as the Uniform Law Commission (ULC), a nonprofit, unincorporated association consisting of commissioners appointed by each state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Its purpose is to discuss and debate which areas of the law require uniformity among the states and territories. The results of these discussions are proposed to the various jurisdictions as either model acts or uniform acts. NCCUSL/ULC promulgated the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) and the Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act (URPERA). (See Digital Closings Clear Final Hurdles)
