uniform laws

uniform laws

A misleading term,because it seems to imply a nationwide system of laws,when really it refers to model legislation that may be adopted by individual states with or without local revisions. There is a great variety of uniform laws, which may be found at the Web site of the organization responsible for discussing and drafting them—the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) (www.nccusl.org).
