What is UELMA?

UELMA is an acronym for the "Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act." UELMA is a uniform act adopted by the Nation Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. The act is intended to provide states with

[A]n outcomes-based approach to the authentication and preservation of electronic legal material. That is, the goals of the authentication and preservation program outlined in the act are to enable end-users to verify the trustworthiness of the legal material they are using and to provide a framework for states to preserve legal material in perpetuity in a manner that allows for permanent access.
