Utah To Start Mentor Program For New Lawyers

The state of Utah will become the third in the nation, after Georgia and Delaware, to require people new to the practice of law to participate in a yearlong, mandatory mentoring program intended to foster professionalism, ethics, and practical advice.

The Utah Supreme Court has already approved the program, called the New Lawyer Training Program, and now anyone who applies to the Utah State Bar must go through the program.   Every new lawyer will be paired with a court-approved attorney, one who has proven experience, who will give one-on-one guidance to the new attorney.

“If you’re a young, solo practitioner just out of law school and you have an office in South Jordan, or you work out of home or Starbucks, you really need to find a relationship with someone who can work with you through that early developmental experience,” said Utah State Bar President, Nate Alder.
