The Utah Bar Journal is published, by the Utah State Bar 6 times each year and is received by every attorney who is licensed to practice law in the state of Utah and all members of the Paralegal Division. Our current circulation is approximately 10,200 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.
