Committees

Standing Committees
The Institute’s Council authorizes the appointment of standing committees and prescribes their duties and authorities. Each standing committee has a formal charter that states its composition, authority, and responsibilities. For a list of members of a standing committee and to view its charter, visit the Standing Committees page.

Special Committees
The Institute's Council or Executive Committee may appoint special committees to give advice on any matter. Special committees are intended to be temporary and ordinarily should not continue longer than three years.

Joint Committees
Permanent Editorial Board for the Uniform Commercial Code (PEB)
The PEB is a joint committee of ALI and the Uniform Law Commission. It assists in attaining and maintaining uniformity in state statutes governing commercial transactions by discouraging non-uniform amendments to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) by the states, and by approving and promulgating amendments to the UCC when necessary.
