Oregon Supreme Court Justice Martha Lee Walters has been elected president of the Uniform Law Commission’s Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, the first woman to lead the 116-year-old pro bono organization, which drafts and promotes uniform laws for all the states. Governor Ted Kulongoski appointed Walters to the state’s supreme court in 2006. She previously served as president of Walters, Romm, Chanti & Dickens, a firm in Eugene, Oreg., and represented professional golfer Casey Martin in a high-profile disability case before the U.S. Supreme Court. She has been a member of the Uniform Law Commission since 1992 and has served as chairwoman of its executive committee. Other officers elected to the Uniform Law Commission include: Minnesota Court of Appeals Justice Harriet Lansing, as vice president; H. Lane Kneedler, a partner at Reed Smith’s Richmond, Va., office and former chief deputy attorney general in the Virginia Attorney General’s Office, as secretary; and Charles A. Trost, a member of Nashville, Tenn.-based Waller, Lansden, Dortch & Davis, as treasurer. The ULC, founded in 1892, includes more than 350 attorneys, judges, professors, legislators, and other state officials who are lawyers, from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. At its most recent meeting, the group’s members approved four new acts and amended three others.
