Prof Burkhart Appointed to Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Real Property Acts

The American College of Real Estate Lawyers has appointed Professor Ann M. Burkhart to serve as its representative to the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Real Property Acts. The Commission includes commissioners from each state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The commissioners draft and propose statutes to state legislatures in areas of the law that would benefit from state uniformity. Since its organization in 1892, the Commission has drafted more than 200 uniform laws on numerous subjects, including the Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Probate Code, and the Uniform Partnership Act. The Joint Editorial Board advises the Commission on proposed uniform real property acts and proposed amendments to existing uniform laws. The Board's members are appointed by the American College of Real Estate Lawyers, the American College of Mortgage Attorneys, the American Bar Association, and the Uniform Law Commission.
