For the first time in its 116-year history, the Uniform Law Commission has a woman at the helm. Oregon Supreme Court Justice Martha Lee Walters, widely known for her representation of a disabled professional golfer who successfully sued the PGA over his right to use a golf cart, has been elected to serve a two-year term as president of the ULC. The 350-member group of legal professionals drafts and promotes uniform laws. Walters was elected Aug. 2 at the group’s 116th Annual Meeting in Pasadena, Calif. Before her appointment to the Oregon Supreme Court, she was president of Walters, Romm, Chanti & Dickens in Eugene, Ore. The ULC is an organization of more than 350 attorneys, judges, law professors and state legislators who draft and promote enactment of uniform laws that are designed to solve problems common to all the states. Commissioners donate their time pro bono. Other ULC officers elected at the conference were: Harriet Lansing, a justice on the Minnesota Court of Appeals in St. Paul, Minn., was named vice-president; H. Lane Kneedler, former chief deputy attorney general in Virginia and current partner at Reed Smith in Richmond, Va., was named Secretary; and Charles A. Trost, of Waller, Lansden, Dortch & Davis in Nashville, Tenn., was named treasurer.
