Final Version of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA) Now Available

The Uniform Law Commission (also known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws) recently released the final version of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA).

The prefatory note and comments accompanying the uniform act explain each section, including what state’s requirements are to ensure that, when legal material is published only in an electronic format, the material is designated as official and is authenticated, preserved and made permanently available to the public.

AALL is now working to enact UELMA. Stay tuned to learn how you can advocate for UELMA in your state.
