The Uniform Law Commission (ULC, also known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws), established in 1892, provides states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that brings clarity and stability to critical areas of state statutory law. It is a state-supported organization, comprised of commissioners from each state, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
