Avisen Legal Partner Kimberly Lowe Reappointed to the Commission on Uniform State Laws
Prestigious appointment made by Governor Tim Walz, Chief Justice Lorie Gildea, and Attorney General Keith Ellison
As of June 1, 2021, Avisen Legal partner Kimberly Lowe has been reappointed for a fourth term to the Commission on Uniform State Laws (ULC). The reappointment was initiated by Minnesota Governor, Tim Walz, Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie Gildea, and Minnesota Attorney general, Keith Ellison. We recently had the opportunity to talk with Kim about her work on this important Commission.
Q. How many two-year terms have you served on the Commission on Uniform State Laws?
A. I was first appointed in 2016, so I have served 3 terms and this is my 4th appointment. I am very pleased to continue the important work of our Commission and am honored to have been reappointed.
Q. What are some of the projects you worked on over the past couple of years?
A. You can visit our website to see the different projects I have been involved in through my work on the Commission on Uniform State Laws.
Q. What do you enjoy most about your Commission work?
A. The ULC provides states with non-partisan, carefully conceived uniform laws. The ULC’s work simplifies life for people who live, work, or travel in multiple states and improves local economies by facilitating interstate commerce. Each uniform act is drafted in an open and deliberative process that draws on the expertise of state-appointed commissioners, legal advisors, and observers. As a commissioner, I work with lawyers from around the country on drafting laws and then I come back to Minnesota and work with our lawmakers to enact these laws. Clear and practical laws benefit all citizens and I am fortunate to be part of that process.
