Oregon Law Alumna Justice Martha Walters Elected President of Uniform Law Commission
Walters, a 1977 graduate of the University of Oregon School of Law, is the first woman elected president in the 116-year history of the ULC. Walters was first appointed to the Conference from Oregon in 1992. She was president of Walters, Romm, Chanti & Dickins, a Eugene, Ore., law firm, and was appointed to the Oregon Supreme Court in 2006.
The ULC is comprised of more than 350 practicing attorneys, judges, law professors, legislators and other state officials — all lawyers — appointed to research, draft and promote enactment of uniform state laws in areas where uniformity is desirable and practical. Commissioners donate their time as a pro bono public service.
Congratulations, Justice Walters!
