Payment Options

The online system accepts credit cards from Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Payment by credit card will automatically advance the license to the next year and you will be able to print a receipt for your records or for reimbursement from your organization. A receipt letter with a licensing sticker will be sent shortly thereafter to complete the transaction.

If you wish to pay by check you will still need to complete the online renewal process after logging in to http://www.myutahbar.org. At that time you will have an option to pay by mail. To accomplish this you will be required to

  1. Select the Pay By Check Option in the payment area
  2. Click the SUBMIT Button
  3. Print a copy of your completed licensing form, attach a check with your Bar number, and mail it to:

Utah State Bar
Attn: Licensing Department
645 South 200 East
Salt Lake City, Utah 84111

For organizations that wish to submit a single check to cover all attorneys in that organization the following steps must be completed:

  1. Each attorney will be required to complete the online form after logging in to http://www.myutahbar.org select the mail in option after completing the form.

  2. The attorney will print off the electronic receipt generated upon completion and submission of the licensing information.

  3. The firm administrator/designated person needs to gather the licening receipt from from each attorney. This evidences the completion of the online portion.

  4. The firm administrator/designated person submits payment for all attorneys. Include a list of attorneys for whom payment is being made. Information should include name, bar number and the amount paid for that attorney, and the total the amount being paid for all attorneys in that batch.

2012-2013 Mandatory Licensing Information

In addition to the address and fee requirements, the 2012-2013 Licensing form contains new requirements that MUST be completed to have your licensing form considered completed.

Email Address Is Now Required - As part of the licening information at least one email address must be provided. Attorneys will have the option of setting the email address to be Private which will mask the address from the public attorney directory. The Utah State Bar will not sell or share this address with any third party.

IOLTA Reporting - Reporting of Attorney IOLTA Status and Accounts is now a requirement for licensure as directed by the Utah Supreme Court. On June 27, 2005, the Utah Supreme Court issued an order setting out new rules to govern the IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts) Program. The order was effective upon signing and attorneys needed to comply with the new rule by December 27, 2005.

The new IOLTA rule no longer allows for attorneys to opt-out of the IOLTA program while still maintaining a non-interest bearing account. It states that all client trust accounts must be interest bearing with attorney making one of two choices of where the interest should be directed. The first option is that the interest be generated for the benefit of the client if the amount is sufficiently large and/or is being held for a sufficient period of time to generate net interest in behalf of the client. (Net interest are the funds that remain after bank service fees and other administrative costs.) If the first option is not viable, the second option is to direct the interest to the Utah Supreme Court IOLTA Program. The Utah Bar Foundation has been appointed by the Utah Supreme Court to administer this program. UCJA Ch. 24 - IOLTA Program Rules
