UTAH STATE BAR Bar Operations & Admissions

Temporary Practice


LAW STUDENT PRACTICE

Law Student Practice is governed by Rule 14-807. An individual currently enrolled in law school may practice under supervision in certain circumstances. This practice is overseen by the law school—no documentation needs to be filed with the Bar.


LAW GRADUATE PRACTICE

Law Graduate Practice is governed by Rule 14-807. Once a person graduates from law school, he or she is eligible to practice under supervision in certain circumstances for up to one year. In order to do so, the law school graduate and his or her supervisor must sign and submit a Law Graduate Practice Request Form and pay a $35 administrative fee. Practice may begin once the graduate receives the Law Graduate Practice Certificate from the Bar. The Bar attempts to process these requests quickly, but please allow at least 48 hours.


PRACTICE PENDING ADMISSION

Practice Pending Admission is governed by Rule 14-809. An attorney who has been licensed and practicing full time for 60 of the last 84 months in another state may practice under supervision while awaiting the approval of his or her application. Practice Pending Admission can only be requested by those who have a pending application with the Bar. In order to practice under this rule, the attorney and his or her supervisor must sign and submit a Practice Pending Admission Request Form and pay a $100 fee. Practice may begin once the attorney receives the Practice Pending Admission Certificate from the Bar. The Bar attempts to process these requests quickly, but please allow at least 72 hours. An incomplete application will delay the issuance of a Practice Pending Admission Certificate.
