Non-Discrimination Policy

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a public university committed to providing a quality education to a diverse student body. It is the policy of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln not to discriminate based on gender, age, disability, race, color, religion, marital status, veteran’s status, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. This policy is applicable to all University administered programs including educational programs, financial aid, admission policies and employment policies. This policy is enacted in accordance with University of Nebraska Regent’s policy and with various federal and state discrimination laws including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The Career Development Office at the University of Nebraska College of Law administers its services in a manner that seeks to provide equal opportunities for the employment of all University of Nebraska College of Law students and graduates. We do not knowingly furnish assistance and facilities for interviewing or other career services functions to employers who discriminate in their selection of employees on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, marital, parental or veterans status, or on the basis of discriminatory directives of clients.

The University of Nebraska asks all prospective employers to familiarize themselves with our non-discrimination policy and requires all employers participating in on-campus programs to provide a written statement of adherence to the policy. The College of Law expects all employers will in good faith consider each applicant on the basis of his or her individual merits. The only exceptions to this rule are made for recruiters for the U. S. Armed Forces pursuant to federal law (“Solomon Amendment”) and religious organizations that use religious employment qualifications according to existing state and federal guidelines.

In addition, the American Bar Association, the Association of American Law Schools and the National Association of Law Placement have adopted non-discrimination policies. The College of Law policy is consistent with those policies.
