Uniform and model laws are frequently proposed to standardize “what the law is or should be” for specific jurisdictions. These model acts can come from national or international drafting organizations, such as the Uniform Law Commission, or from interest groups or associations that want to promote specific policies. Ms. Whisner provides an overview of the various types of model laws that researchers should know about.
