Court Types in Utah
The Supreme Court is made up of five justices, who serve ten-year renewable terms and has been referred to the 'court of last resort'. The justices chose a chief justice to serve for four years, as well as a associate chief justice to serve two years.
The Supreme Court holds session at the Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City and meets in the first and third Mondays of each month. While two justices devote time to writing opinions, the other three sit on the law and motion panel.
In the first week of each month, the Court holds oral argument sessions. After attorneys argue their cases, the justices hold a conference, and one is assigned to write an opinion.
