Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Utah does not require or currently have special admission rules for government attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions to be able to practice as Utah government attorneys. Check out Utah Pro Hac Vice Rules for admission on a specific matter.

Military Attorneys

Utah government attorneys are not to be confused with Military admitted attorneys. Currently, military attorneys are governed by the Utah's Supreme Court Rule 14-804. This rule regulates the admission of military attorneys and strictly applies to JAGS. For a JAG to be admitted in the state of Utah they:

  • Must be admitted to practice in another state jurisdiction (min of two years)
  • Be employed full-time by a government entity
  • Engage in the active practice of law
  • Adhere to the CLE requirements
  • An employer statement that indicates that the future employee will work for the employer as an attorney providing legal services
  • Sworn statements that there has not been any violations of the ethic code or sanctions brought against the attorney in any other jurisdiction where they are barred.
