Uniforms Laws Committee

The Uniform Laws Committee is responsible for monitoring, reviewing, and promoting uniform state laws involving the law of real property, trusts and estates. The committee reports to the RPTE section council on current projects of the Uniform Law Commission (ULC), and provides recommendations and assistance to the two boards that monitor and review uniform laws: the Joint Editorial Board on Uniform Real Property Acts, and the Joint Editorial Board on Uniform Trust and Estate Acts. The committee often sponsors CLE programming on uniform laws in development or recently approved. Committee members may also work to promote the adoption of uniform laws by state legislatures when appropriate.
