The Utah Bar Journal is published 6 times each year and is received by every attorney and paralegal division member who maintain an Active, Current, or Inactive-Full Service license with the Utah State Bar. Our current circulation is approximately 10,800 and growing. To accommodate the growing number of those that read the Bar Journal online it is also published in enhanced PDF and epub,  formats. The Bar Journal is also directly integrated with the Casemaker legal research service. Articles published on that platform are directly integrated with the growing libraries making it easy to go from an article citation directly to the case law and then on to other related materials.
