The Uniform Arbitration Act (UAA) is one of the most successful laws promulgated by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL). Originally passed by NCCUSL in 1955, the UAA has served as the bases of arbitration statutes in some forty-eight jurisdictions. As more parties have incorporated arbitration clauses into contractual relationships, the importance of the UAA and its federal counterpart, the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), have correspondingly increased. Supreme Court precedent at both federal and state levels abrogating the common law hostility against arbitration and replacing this attitude with and avowedly pro-arbitration doctrine has enhanced the arbitration process
