UCJA Rule 14-716 (Code of Judicial Administration)


Rule 14-716. License fees; enrollment fees; oath and admission.
Rule printed on December 5, 2022 at 11:46 pm. Go to https://www.utcourts.gov/rules for current rules.
Effective: 9/1/2020

(a) Court enrollment fees and Bar license fee. After notification that the Board has approved the Applicant for admission, the Applicant must pay to the Bar the applicable Bar license fee for either Active or Inactive status. The Bar also collects and transmits the federal and state court enrollment fees. The Applicant must pay to the Bar the mandatory Supreme Court enrollment fee, regardless of whether the Applicant elects Active or Inactive attorney status.

(b) Motion for admission and enrollment. Upon satisfaction of the requirements of Rule 14-716(a), the Board will submit motions to the Supreme Court and the United States District Court for the District of Utah for admission certifying that the Applicants have satisfied all qualifications and requirements for admission to the Bar. The Board will submit four motions for admission per year: February, May, August, and October. After the motions are submitted and upon approval by the Supreme Court and the United States District Court for the District of Utah and upon taking the required oath, an Applicant is eligible to be enrolled into Utah's state and federal courts.

(c) Oath of attorney and certificate of admission. Every Applicant must take an oath. The oath must be administered by the clerk of the Supreme Court, the clerk of a court of the United States, a Utah state judge of district or juvenile court level or higher, a judge of a court of the United States or a judge of a court of general jurisdiction or higher of a state of the United States. In the event of military assignment, a military court judge may administer the oath. After administration of the oath, each Applicant must sign the roll of attorneys maintained by the clerk of the Supreme Court at which time the Applicant receives a certificate of admission. If the oath is administered other than at a regularly scheduled ceremony conducted by the Court, the Applicant must contact the clerk of the Supreme Court for information on administration of the oath, and if applicable, the clerk of the United States District Court for the District of Utah.

(d) Time limit for admission. After receiving notice of approval for admission, an Applicant must pay the prescribed license and enrollment fees and take the oath as required by Rule 14-716(c) within six months or approval for admission is automatically withdrawn. Failure to timely satisfy the provisions of this rule requires an Applicant to recommence the application process including the submission of a new application, the payment of application fees, a new character and fitness investigation and the retaking of the Bar Examination, if applicable.

The Utah State Courts mission is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
