The Uniform Law Commission (ULC) held its 128th annual National Conference in Anchorage, Alaska, on July 11-18, 2019. Arkansas was represented by its commissioners, David Nixon, John Thomas Shepherd, and Cliff McKinney. Earlier in the year, Arkansas adopted two new uniform acts: The Uniform Protected Series Act (now Act 1611) and the Uniform Directed Trust Act (Act 1021).

The ULC’s rules for approving proposed uniform acts typically require consideration at two consecutive annual meetings. Following is a brief description of the acts that were approved on final reading this year.
