The Tax, Financial Services, and Antitrust Division of the Office of the Utah Attorney General has an immediate opening for an attorney in its Antitrust Section.

Preference will be given to an applicant with formal education (e.g. masters, major, or minor) in economics or accounting, or completion of recognized training in data security and management (e.g. CIPP certification).

All new hires must be members in good standing of the Utah Bar as of the hire date, or must (A) be members in good standing of another state bar as of the hire date, (B) gain admission to the Utah Bar during the probationary period, and (C) receive pre-hiring approval by the Attorney General.
