(a) Lawyers licensed by the Bar shall be divided into the following licensure categories:

(a)(1) Active. Active members are those lawyers eligible to practice law as defined by Rule 14-802. An active member must maintain an active license.

(a)(2) Active, under three. Active under three lawyers are those persons who took the student Bar Examination as defined in Rule 14-710 and have not been admitted to practice for more than three years in any jurisdiction.

(a)(3) Active emeritus. Active emeritus lawyers are those lawyers who have been a member of the Bar for 50 years or are 75 years of age as of July 1 of the current year and who are engaged in the practice of law.

(a)(4) Inactive. Inactive members are those lawyers who have retired from or for other reasons are not engaged in the practice of law as defined by the Rule 14-802. An inactive member must maintain an inactive license. They shall have the right to attend meetings of the Bar but shall not have a vote. They may serve on Bar committees and be members of sections of the Bar.

(b) Transfer from inactive to active status. An inactive member may become an active member upon request and by paying the licensing fees which would have been payable July 1 had the member then been active. A lawyer who transfers must also pay the Lawyer's Fund for Client Protection assessment for the licensure cycle when assessed.

(c) Register of members to be kept. The executive director shall maintain a register of lawyers which shall contain a designation as to their licensing status and such other information as the Board may determine to be necessary or desirable or as required by rule.

(d) Information required of members. Each member of the Bar shall furnish the executive director information indicating his or her date and the place of birth, dates of admission in other jurisdictions, and concerning such other matters as the Board may from time to time prescribe. This information shall be furnished by each member as a part of, or as a supplement to, the annual licensing form required by the rules or upon inquiry at any time by the executive director.

(e) Membership licensure card. Each member shall be furnished with a current licensure card.

(f) Professional misconduct. If an inactive member, or active member while suspended, shall practice law, he or she shall be subject to the disciplinary process as in cases of other professional misconduct under the Utah Rules of Professional Conduct and Article 5, Lawyer Discipline and Disability.
