Professor Sullivan and Vi Simpson, '94, Named to Uniform Law Commission
Professor Frank Sullivan, Jr., and Indiana Senator Vi Simpson, ’94, have been named by Governor Mitch Daniels to represent Indiana on the Uniform Law Commission (ULC).
The ULC, formerly known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, is the organization responsible for creating the Uniform Commercial Code and the Uniform Partnership Act, among other important legal endeavors.
“It is noteworthy that both Frank and Vi are members of the opposite political party from the Governor’s – a tribute to all three of them,” said Dean Gary Roberts. Simpson is also a recent lieutenant governor candidate.
They join other ULC members with ties to the law school: IUPUI Chancellor Emeritus and Professor of Law Gerald L. Bepko; and Marti Starkey, ’81, a partner at Harrison & Moberly. Bepko and Starkey are life members of ULC.
