Report from the ABA Midyear Meeting

Six uniform acts were approved by the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates as “appropriate Acts for those states desiring to adopt the specific substantive law suggested therein.” The acts were approved at the ABA’s Midyear Meeting in San Diego, California, February 3-8, 2016. All of the acts were approved by the ULC in 2015.

The six acts that were approved by the ABA/HOD were the:

  • Revised Uniform Athlete Agents Act (further information can be found here);
  • Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act (further information can be found here);
  • Uniform Home Foreclosure Procedures Act (further information can be found here);
  • Uniform Recognition and Enforcement of Canadian Domestic-Violence Protection Orders Act (further information can be found here);
  • Revised Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (further information can be found here); and
  • Uniform Trust Decanting Act (further information can be found here).

Special thanks to Commissioner Bob Stein, our ABA Delegate, Commissioner Tom Bolt, Chair of our Committee on Liaison with the American Bar Association, and Ben Orzeske, ULC Chief Counsel, who all attended the meeting and worked to ensure our successful efforts through the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates.
