Mandatory Online Licensing

The annual online licensing renewal process will begin June 4, 2018, at which time you will receive an email outlining renewal instructions. This email will be sent to your email address of record. Utah Supreme Court Rule 14-507 requires lawyers to provide their current e-mail address to the Bar. If you need to update your email address of record, please contact

Renewing your license online is simple and efficient, taking only about five minutes. With the online system you will be able to verify and update your unique licensure information, join sections and specialty bars, answer a few questions, and pay all fees.

No separate licensing form will be sent in the mail. You will be asked to certify that you are the licensee identified in this renewal system. Therefore, this process should only be completed by the individual licensee, not by a secretary, office manager, or other representative. Upon completion of the renewal process, you will receive a licensing confirmation email. If you do not receive the confirmation email in a timely manner, please contact

License renewal and fees are due July 1 and will be late August 1. If renewal is not complete and payment received by September 1, your license will be suspended.

Elder Law Pro Bono Opportunity

May is national Elder Law Month. In celebration, we invite lawyers to fulfill their pro bono requirement by volunteering to give twenty-minute legal consultations at senior citizen centers. Senior Center Legal Consultations (SCLC), a pro bono program sponsored by the Elder Law Section and the USB Access to Justice Program, is a pleasurable way for attorneys to provide valued services to senior citizens. For information on volunteering for the SCLC, please contact Joyce Maughan, Pro Bono Coordinator, Elder Law Section, (801) 359-5900 or or Nicholas Stiles, Director of the USB Access to Justice Program, (801) 297-7027 Thank you.
