Welcome to the Utah State Bar

Attorneys creating a justice system that is understood, valued, respected and accessible to all. 

Updated Website Features Intuitive Design, Improved Information Flow

This new Utah State Bar website is designed to provide information to the public, to attorneys, and all those interested in the practice of law in Utah.

Currently, Utah has more than 10,000 practicing lawyers, with specialties ranging from Admiralty Law (law that covers offenses that take place on navigable waters)  to wills and estate law.

If you’re a member of the public, studies show that at some point in your life you will likely need legal assistance. The Bar is here to help you get the legal help you need. Utah is the nationwide leader in making low- and no-cost legal options available to you. Click on the “For the Public” menu option above to find the resources to answer your questions and find a legal professional to help.

For members of the Bar and Paralegals, you’ll find all you need to register for Bar events and CLE’s, renew your license, check out ethics opinions, and access your practice portal. Links to IOLTA accounts and Bar Sections are also available. Our goal with this website is to make information critical to your practice easy to find and intuitive to use.

If you have questions about this website, we invite you to email website@utahbar.org

"Common Thread" Program Helps Law Students Build Connections

Nearly 100 law students, practitioners, and judges from all backgrounds in life and in the law, from both Utah law schools, from many states and birth nations, gathered to celebrate their diversity and unity in an effort to build community and to enrich professional connections. Their shared collective experience filled the Law and Justice Center during the inaugural event for the Common Thread Program.

The Common Thread Program is a joint effort of the Bar and the Utah State Courts which is intended to support law students in their long-term goals of building a career, finding roots in Utah’s legal industry and potentially serving the Utah public on the bench and in other leadership roles. The program hopes to build longevity and loyalty to living and working in the Utah community and bring continued respect to the rule of law.
