During the first 3 weeks of June, Prof. Jeff Ferriell, in his role as one of Ohio’s Uniform Law Commissioners, participated in a series of almost daily virtual meetings concerning an extraordinarily wide variety of “uniform law” proposals that the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) is working on. Topics of the meetings included 

  • The Uniform Community Property Disposition at Death Act
  • The Uniform Unregulated Transfers of Adopted Children Act
  • The Uniform Debt Collection Default Judgments Act 
  • The Uniform Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Data Act
  • The Uniform College Athlete Name, Image, and Likeness Act
  • The Uniform Covenants Not to Compete Act
  • The Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act and Condominium Act
  • The Uniform Unincorporated Organizations Acts 
  • The Uniform Alcohol Direct Shipping Compliance Act
  • The Uniform Economic Rights of Unmarried Cohabitants Act
  • Uniform Commercial Code and Emerging Technologies
  • The Uniform Telehealth Act
  • The Uniform Public Meetings During Emergencies Act

The ULC (also known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws) was established in 1892 to provide states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that will bring clarity and stability to critical areas of state statutory law. Prof. Ferriell has been a Uniform Law Commissioner since he was originally appointed by Governor Strickland in 2007, and currently serves on the drafting committee of the Uniform Debt Collection Default Judgments Act and as chair of the Academic Partnerships Committee. Prof. Ferriell, who teaches Contracts, Secured Transactions, Bankruptcy, and Professional Responsibility, has been on the Capital faculty since 1987.
