Utah Bar President
John R. Lund

eBulletin for August 2017  

Many thanks to everyone who helped make the Summer Convention a success, especially Co-chairs Judge Robert Shelby and Amy Sorenson, 2016-2017 Bar President Rob Rice, and Senator Orrin Hatch, who has been instrumental over the years in encouraging SCOTUS justices to visit us. Another blockbuster CLE is coming with the 2017 Fall Forum set for November 10.

With over 10,000 active members, Utah lawyers make a real impact every day on the lives of their fellow Utahns. At the Summer Convention the Notorious RBG advised us to do something outside of ourselves with those skills and abilities. Such opportunities abound at http://www.utahbar.org/members/. http://www.utahbar.org/members/.

Like any president can, I’ve fired up a twitter account. Follow me @USBPresident for thoughts on how Utah lawyers can help clients with innovative, affordable and effective legal services
