Collaborative law is a form of alternative dispute resolution that developed over 30 years ago in Minnesota with attorney Stu Webb. Since its initial use in Minnesota, the practice has spread to all 50 states in the U.S and to 25 different countries across the globe. With the passage of its Uniform Collaborative Law Act (UCLA) in 2021, Virginia becomes the 21st U.S. jurisdiction to pass a Uniform Collaborative Law Act or Rule, including D.C. in 2012 and Maryland in 2014.

Virginia’s UCLA becomes effective July 1, 2021 and will be set out in Virginia Code as Title 20, Chapter 11, §§ 20-168 through 20-187.
