Footnotes (by Kimble Law PLLC, not part of Utah Code):
FN 1: What is a "part"? The Utah Code is divided into titles, chapters, parts, sections and subsections. This is section 57-8a-703. The first number before a hyphen indicates the title (Title 57 in this case). The second number indicates the chapter (Chapter 8a). The third number is the section (in this case, 703). If a chapter is divided into parts (like this chapter 8a), the first number of that third number reflects the part the section is located in. So, this section (57-8a-703) is located in Part 7 of Chapter 8a of Title 57. As it states in subsection (1), this section is indicating when this part, which is Part 7 and which currently consists of Sections 701, 702 and 703, applies.
