The Future of National and International Law Reform
Conference on the Uniform Law Commission and Law Reform: Past, Present, and Future. While the Uniform Law Commission's primary efforts over the years have been to prepare uniform legislation that is recommended for enactment in states of the United States, the Commission has always paid attention to law reform efforts in other countries, and to the possible impact of the Commission's work beyond the United States. In recent years, however, the ULC has undertaken a significant number of projects with international or transnational aspects, including working closely with the State Department on legislation necessary to implement numerous international conventions, and working with the Uniform Law Conference of Canada on projects that will result in closely harmonized legislation that will be enacted both in Canadian provinces and U.S. states.
