Thank you for your interest in the Paralegal Division of the Utah State Bar (the “Division”). The
Division was created by the Utah Supreme Court in April of 1996. Since that time, the Division,
through its members and leadership, has worked to remain an active and respected part of the
Utah State Bar. Our members bring a high level of skill and professionalism to the delivery of
legal services and come from all venues of the legal community including law firms,
corporations, and government offices. We look forward to the future with continued success,
growth and progress of the Division, its members and the paralegal profession.
There are a variety of activities and committees the Division is involved in throughout the year.
The members of our Community Service Committee, our Board, and Division Members have
been very involved within our local communities, seeking out new opportunities for our
members to pull together and make a difference in the lives of others. We are very proud to
work hand-in-hand with the Young Lawyers Division serving as notaries and witnesses with the
popular and ever-expanding Wills for Heroes and Serving Our Seniors programs.
The Division’s Continuing Legal Education Committee is hard at work coordinating outstanding
CLE opportunities to help us maintain the highest standards and keep up with current laws and
trends. Be sure to check out the Division’s Facebook page for more information on events and
The Division’s Membership and Utilization Committees are working hard to increase
opportunities for membership in the Division, and provide information on the utilization of
paralegals. Our Region Directors are working hard planning open houses to provide networking
opportunities. We believe that through these types of events the Division’s current members,
and potential members, will have a sense of community with fellow paralegals.
More information on Division membership, minimum qualifications (including being under the
ultimate and direct supervision of an attorney), CLE requirements, and application forms, are
available by clicking on the Membership tab above.
A myriad of opportunities await you as a member of the Paralegal Division. If you are interested
in participating on a committee or perhaps assisting on a specific project, please submit a
committee volunteer form or contact someone on the Board of Directors. We welcome and
encourage your involvement.
Please let us know how we can assist you.
