Rule 14-508. Periodic assessment of lawyers.

(a) Annual licensing fee. Every lawyer admitted to practice in Utah shall pay to the Bar on or before July 1 of each year an annual license fee for each fiscal year to be fixed by the Board from time to time and approved by the Supreme Court. The fee shall be sufficient to pay the costs of disciplinary administration and enforcement under this article.

(b) Failure to renew annual license. Failure to pay the annual licensing fee or provide the required annual licensing information shall result in administrative suspension. Any lawyer who practices law after failure to renew his or her license violates the Rules of Professional Conduct and may be disciplined. The executive director or his or her designee shall give notice of such removal from the rolls to such non-complying member at the designated mailing address on record at the Bar and to the state and federal courts in Utah. The non-complying member may apply in writing for re-enrollment by tendering the license fees and/or the required information and an additional $200 reinstatement fee. Upon receiving the same, the Bar shall order re-enrollment and so notify the courts. Re-enrollment based on failure to renew does not negate any orders of discipline.
