The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws was created by interstate compact in 1892. By 1912, every state had appointed uniform law commissioners.The Conference promotes uniform legislation designed to solve problems common to all states. Commissioners representing state government and the legal profession draft proposals, then work for their adoption by the states. When uniformity is neither practical nor necessary, the Conference also designs model acts to provide states with a concisely structured legislative framework adaptable to particular needs and problems.

The major portion of financial support for the Conference comes from state appropriations assessed on the basis of population.
