Resume Collection    Job Posting

Bylaw 6-3(b) of the Association of American Law Schools requires every employer participating in the On-Campus Interview Program and Job Notification Program to affirm its status as an equal opportunity employer, offering the College of Law’s students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender (including identity and expression), sexual orientation, age, or disability. 

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.
