|Bradley Myers appointed to national committee|
UND School of Law Associate Professor Bradley Myers was recently appointed to the National Commission on Uniform State Laws by North Dakota Governor John Hoeven.
“I am grateful to Gov. Hoeven for granting me this opportunity to serve the people of North Dakota,” said Myers. “I look forward to representing them at the National Commission as it continues its important work.”
Myers, the Randy H. Lee Associate Professor of Law, began his term on the Commission Sept. 17, 2007, and will serve through Aug. 31, 2009. Myers joined the Law School faculty in 2001 and teaches trusts and estates, income taxation, intellectual property, international law, and estate planning. He also assists with the Norwegian Exchange Program for the School of Law. Myers received both a B.S. and M.S. from the University of California, Los Angeles, a J.D. from the University of Oregon, and an LL.M. in taxation from New York University.
The Uniform Law Commission (ULC), now in its 116th year, comprises more than 350 practicing lawyers, governmental lawyers, judges, law professors, and lawyer-legislators from every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Myers is one of only 10 commissioners from the state of North Dakota.
The uniform law commissioners are appointed by their states to draft and promote enactment of uniform laws that are designed to solve problems common to all the states. After receiving the ULC’s seal of approval, a uniform act is officially promulgated for consideration by the states, and legislatures are urged to adopt it. Since its inception in 1892, the ULC has promulgated more than 200 uniform acts, among them such bulwarks of state statutory law as the Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Unclaimed Property Act, the Uniform Probate Code, the Uniform Partnership Act, Uniform Securities Act, the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, and the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act.
