Projects Overview

The ULC has established numerous committees to facilitate its work. Standing committees are the permanent committees of the ULC, and include the Executive Committee and the Scope and Program Committee. Study committees review an assigned area of law in light of defined criteria and recommend whether ULC should proceed with a draft on that subject. Drafting committees draft Uniform or Model Acts on specified subjects.

Ideas for new uniform or model acts are considered by the ULC Committee on Scope and Program, which welcomes requests from bar associations, state governmental entities, private interest groups, uniform law commissioners and private citizens. Any party wishing to suggest an idea for a uniform or model act may contact the ULC headquarters office in Chicago, which will forward the suggestion to the Committee on Scope and Program.

Guidelines concerning the submission of ideas for new uniform or model acts can be found on the Publications page.
