WSLL Recommends: NCCUSL & National State Law Survey

Two exciting new databases have been purchased by the State Law Library, available through HeinOnline.

NCCUSL - National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws

Before the Wisconsin State Legislature votes on a "uniform law," the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws has spent at least two years discussing and refining language that is eventually offered to the states for consideration. The documents produced in this process - such as issue memos, drafts and final rules are all part of the online NCCUSL archive on HeinOnline. This valuable database includes access to the all acts, including new proposals, such as the Revised Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act (Dec. 2015) and long-standing laws, such as the Uniform Securities Act (1949).

National Survey of State Laws

Attorneys and researchers often need to compare laws across many states. The National Survey of State Laws reviews the most popular legal topics and provides statutory references and brief explanation of the law in each state. Topics include lemon law, minimum wage, adverse possession, divorce, and gun control to name a few. Access on HeinOnline includes prior editions, back to 1993.
