Winter 2023 Issue


Welcome to the newest issue of Res Gestae, Utah Law's alumni magazine!

In this issue we explore Professor Anna Carpenter's pathbreaking research on state civil courts, which finds that the phenomenon of "lawyerless courts" can diminish access to justice for those who need it most.

We also spotlight some amazing alumnae, including Justices Diana Hagen ('98) and Jill Pohlman ('96), the two newest members of the Utah Supreme Court, and Abigail Dizon-Maughan ('12), a tireless advocate for diversity in the legal profession.

Plus: We invite you submit Class Notes! Share your professional and personal accomplishments with fellow SJQ alumni—we publish Class Notes each year in our fall issue of Res Gestae.

Alumnae Join Utah Supreme Court—and Make History

With their 2022 confirmations, Justices Diana Hagen and Jill Pohlman gave the Utah Supreme Court its first female majority in history. Here, they tell us why they chose law, what they love about their careers—and how their life experiences have shaped their perspective.
