In The News SLTrib OpEd Utah lawyer discipline balances individual rights, public responsibility

admin : March 3, 2014 5:30 pm : In the News, Utah Bar President

 
By Curtis M. Jensen and Terri McIntosh

First Published SLTrib Mar 03 2014 04:54 pm • Last Updated Mar 03 2014 04:54 pm

In response to recent concerns about how attorney discipline is handled, we would like to explain how the legal profession helps to ensure that lawyers in Utah practice in an ethical manner.

The Utah Constitution gives the Utah Supreme Court the responsibility to regulate the practice of law. The Utah State Bar was established in 1931 under the authority of the Utah Supreme Court to fulfill that responsibility, which includes licensing attorneys, providing continuing legal education and, when necessary, seeking the imposition of discipline.
