UCJA Rule 14-107 (Code of Judicial Administration)

 

Rule 14-107. Duties of lawyers, foreign legal consultants, and licensed paralegal practitioners.
Rule printed on October 6, 2022 at 5:42 pm. Go to https://www.utcourts.gov/rules for current rules.
Effective: 12/15/2020

(a) Roster and current record information. The Bar must collect, maintain, and have ready access to current information of Bar members, foreign legal consultants, and licensed paralegal practitioners including:

(1) full name;

(2) date of birth;

(3) current physical addresses, and current telephone numbers for law office and residence, except that full-time judges are exempt from providing residential addresses and telephone numbers;

(4) current e-mail address;

(5) date of admission;

(6) date of any transfer to or from inactive status;

(7) all specialties in which certified;

(8) other jurisdictions in which the lawyer is admitted and date of admission; and

(9) nature, date, and place of any discipline imposed and any reinstatements.

(b) Assessments.

(1) Annual licensing fee. To effectuate the Bar’s purposes, every lawyer, foreign legal consultant, and licensed paralegal practitioner admitted or licensed to practice in Utah must pay to the Bar on or before July 1 of each year an annual license fee for each fiscal year to be fixed by the Bar Commission from time to time and approved by the Supreme Court. The fee must be sufficient to pay the costs of disciplinary administration and enforcement. The Bar administers the funds.

(2) Failure to renew annual license. Failure to pay the annual licensing fee or provide the required annual licensing information will result in administrative suspension. Any lawyer, foreign legal consultant, or licensed paralegal practitioner who practices law after failing to renew such license violates the Rules of Professional Conduct or Licensed Paralegal Practitioner Rules of Professional Conduct and may be disciplined. The executive director or designee must give notice of such removal from the rolls to such noncomplying member at the designated mailing address on the Bar’s records and to the state and federal courts in Utah.

(3) Reenrollment within three years of administrative suspension. A lawyer, foreign legal consultant, or licensed paralegal practitioner who is administratively suspended for failing to pay licensing fees for three years or less may apply in writing for reenrollment. The request should be made to the Utah State Bar Licensing Department and include payment equal to the fees the lawyer, foreign legal consultant, or licensed paralegal practitioner would have been required to pay had such person remained an inactive member to the date of the request for reenrollment and a $200 reinstatement fee. Upon receipt, the Bar will order reenrollment and so notify the courts. Reenrollment based on failure to renew does not negate any orders of discipline.

(4) Reenrollment after three years of administrative suspension. A lawyer, foreign legal consultant, or licensed paralegal practitioner who is administratively suspended for three years or more for failing to pay license fees must comply with the admissions requirements set forth in the Supreme Court Rules of Professional Practice governing admission for lawyers who have been administratively suspended for nonpayment for three or more years before being reinstated.
