Principles of Equal Opportunity in Hiring
The University of Arizona College of Law Career Development Office expects that prospective employers will provide the University of Arizona students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran's status, genetic information, gender identity or gender expression. The Law School does not make its services, interviewing facilities, or job posting and recruiting system available to employers who discriminate or segregate in their hiring on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran's status, genetic information, gender identity, gender expression or any other basis prohibited by applicable law. A limited exception to this policy exists for military recruiters, but only insofar as their employment and hiring practices are permitted under existing federal law.
