Commercial Law & Uniform State Laws Committee

The Commercial Law & Uniform State Laws Committee focuses on general topics of commercial law relevant to New York and on all types of proposed uniform laws (and revisions to uniform laws) that may be appropriate for New York. These uniform laws cover (in addition to commercial law) laws relating to business entities, trade regulation and consumer protection, civil and criminal litigation and procedure, family matters, real estate & mortgages, trusts & estates, and healthcare and medical matters. The committee often coordinates its work with other City Bar committees having subject-matter or industry expertise or interest. Activities include reports on proposed laws, CLE programs, interaction with Uniform Law Commissioners and staff and the New York Senate and Assembly legislative staff, and inviting outside speakers to give short talks of interest to our members.
