Resume Collection    Job Posting

Illinois Law asks every employer participating in the On-Campus Interview Program and Job Notification Program to affirm its status as an equal opportunity employer, offering employment without unlawful or invidious discrimination or segregation on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, handicap, disability, marital status, status as a disabled or Vietnam-era veteran, or any other protected status.

Our office will not post job opportunities or otherwise disseminate employment information in circumstances where a non-lawyer is seeking a law student to do legal research. This policy is to prevent students from being placed in a situation where they could be called upon to engage in activities that could be construed as the unauthorized practice of law.
