The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) is a non-profit, unincorporated association in the United States that consists of commissioners appointed by each state and territory. The purpose of the association is to discuss and debate in which areas of law there should be uniformity among the states and to draft acts accordingly (called Uniform Acts).
The results of these discussions are proposed to the states as either model acts or uniform acts. NCCUSL is best known for its work on the landmark legislation Uniform Commercial Code, drafted in conjunction with the American Law Institute. NCCUSL headquarters are in Chicago, Illinois. The organization is alternatively referred to as the Uniform Law Commission (ULC).
