10th Circuit’s New Website

Government websites are a mixed bag.  Some are quite modern, while others look like they’re stuck in the ’90s.  The information on these websites is free, so attorneys and others come to them often for legal information.  The easier they are to use, the fewer headaches they induce.

Utah State Courts Forms

As a law student it’s likely that you’ve already had friends or relatives ask you for legal help.  It can be an awkward situation since you’re not yet a lawyer and can’t give legal advice.  It’s always good to be aware of some self-help resources you can direct them to so that they can get [...]
