NOTICE REGARDING MILITARY RECRUITMENT
In order to conduct job interviews in the law school or to obtain assistance from the Career Services Office, prospective employers must sign a statement of nondiscrimination based on race, color, religion, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation. Federal laws relating to military service preclude representatives of the Armed Forces from signing the nondiscrimination statement in its entirety. Congress also has enacted a statute, known as the Solomon Amendment, requiring that federal funding -- including several categories of student loans -- be terminated at any educational institution that refuses access to military recruiters. Therefore, the law school grants access to military recruiters who sign the nondiscrimination statement to the extent consistent with federal law.
