Roscoe Pound, A.M., Ph.D., LL.D., who has been appointed dean of the law school of Harvard University, emphasizes the importance of unification of laws of the commonwealths in this country. The larger part of the burden of the movement, in any systematized sense, is being carried by the American Bar Association through its commissioners on uniform state laws. "There is no logical reason," Doctor Pound says, "why there should not be uniform state laws in the United States. Much has been done already along commercial lines. Our negotiable instruments law has been adopted by forty states. In all, nine uniform laws framed by the American Bar Association commission are in process of acceptance by the several commonwealths. The latest, a uniform law on partnership, has been accepted by one state."
A recent report by the American Bar Association's commission on uniform state laws showed that the uniform warehouse receipts act has been passed in twenty-one states and territories and the District of Columbia; the sales act in eight states and one territory; the stock transfer act in five states; the bills of lading act in six states; the wills act in four states; the family desertion act in five states; the uniform divorce act in three states. The commission has committees on commercial law, wills, descent and distribution, marriage and divorce, depositions and proof of statutes in other states, insurance, congressional action, purity of articles of commerce, uniform corporation law, Torrens system and registration of land titles, banks and banking, vital and penal statistics, child labor legislation, situs of real and personal property for purposes of taxation, boilers and inspection, expert testimony in criminal proceedings, flag legislation, and computation of time.
