Texas A&M Law Professor William Henning is a former Executive Director of the Uniform Law Commission and has his fingerprints on laws in all 50 states, DC, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands that affect your everyday life. He took the time to talk with me about some of the laws he’s helped draft and enact, and just how far ranging the work of the Uniform Law Commission is.
We primarily focus in on two laws that he’s been involved with through his work with the Uniform Law Commission. The Uniform Commercial Code – Professor Henning’s bread and butter as it were – is one. The other is a law enacted after Hurricane Katrina to help mobilize aid to areas where emergencies have been declared. While those are the two main acts discussed, we talked about at least half a dozen different pieces of legislation – all of which is wide ranging – and which are enacted all over the country. That just starts to give an impression of how impactful the work of the Uniform Law Commission is.
