UCJA Rule 14-111 (Code of Judicial Administration)


Rule 14-111. Practicing without a license prohibited.
Rule printed on October 6, 2022 at 4:51 pm. Go to https://www.utcourts.gov/rules for current rules.
Effective: 12/15/2020

(a) Action or proceedings to enforce. Exception. No person who is not licensed to practice law in Utah as an attorney at law or as a foreign legal consultant or licensed paralegal practitioner may practice or assume to act or hold himself or herself out to the public as a person qualified to practice law or to carry on the calling of an attorney at law in Utah or licensed paralegal practitioner. Such practice, or assumption to act or holding out, by any such unlicensed person will not constitute a crime, but this prohibition against the practice of law by any such person will be enforced by such civil action or proceedings, including writ, contempt, or injunctive proceedings, as may be necessary and appropriate, which action or which proceedings the Bar will institute after Board approval.

(b) Nothing in this article will prohibit a person who is unlicensed as an attorney, foreign legal consultant, or licensed paralegal practitioner from personally representing that person’s own interests in a cause to which the person is a party in that person’s own right and not an assignee.

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.
