Professional Listserv

The UACDL listserv is an invaluable resource for defense attorneys.  UACDL members have access to online threads discussing important defense-related topics.  If you have a difficult issue, chances are that someone else has dealt with it before.

Brief Bank & Form Templates

UACDL provides a large brief bank and collection of document templates for defense attorneys.  Members can search the brief bank by topic and keyword to find pleadings for a wide variety of criminal law topics.

Brady Database

UACDL provides members access to a database of information related to law enforcement employees who have committed misconduct.  This provides individual defense attorneys a way to investigate whether a government witness against their clients has acted dishonestly or inappropriately in the past.

High-Quality Legal Education

UACDL is the premier source of defense-related legal education in Utah. UACDL will stream CLE presentations so that attorneys across the State can access high-quality presentations in-person or through live, online webinars.  The Association will also offer pre-recorded CLE options for a minimal cost with discounts to public defenders and new lawyers.
