Uniform Acts have played a significant role in the development of the law on trusts and estates. While the Uniform Probate Code is perhaps the best known of such Acts, there are many others. The Uniform Trust Code (2000) ( “UTC”) continues in this tradition. Like the Uniform Probate Code, it provides the states with a comprehensive model for codifying their laws. It provides the states with an opportunity to update, fill out, and systematize their law on trusts.
