Uniform Law Commissioners Law and Legal Definition

The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) is otherwise known as uniform law commissioners. They provide states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that brings clarity and stability to critical areas of the law. They work for the standardization of U.S. state laws in the United States of America. Uniform Law Commissioners must be lawyers, qualified to practice law. They are lawyer-legislators, attorneys in private practice, state and federal judges, law professors, and legislative staff attorneys, who have been appointed by state governments 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 where uniformity is desirable and practical. The NCCUSL does not have any legislative power and to give legal effect to any uniform act requires the approval of state legislatures.
