Admission to the Utah State Bar is limited to three motions for admission per year: February, May and October.  After the application has been processed and approved by the Character and Fitness Committee, you will be eligible to be admitted on the next scheduled motion.  An application for admission based on the transfer of a UBE score can be filed at any time.  However, bear in mind that processing an application takes 4-6 months. This means that in order to ensure that you are admitted on a specific motion you must file the application at least six months before that motion (e.g. if you want to ensure admission in October you must file your application by April).


Student Application – $550
Attorney Application – $850
