NALP Principles & Guidelines
The S.J. Quinney College of Law is a member of the National Association for Law Placement (NALP). Originally formed in 1971, NALP is an association of over 2,500 legal career professionals who advise law students, lawyers, law offices, and law schools in North America and beyond.
NALP’s mission is outlined below:
* To provide vision and expertise in research and education for legal career counseling and planning, recruitment, employment, and professional development;
* To cultivate ethical practices and fairness in legal career counseling and planning, recruitment, employment, and professional development;
* To promote the full range of legal career opportunities and to foster access to legal public interest and public sector employment; and
* To advocate for diversity in the legal profession and in our membership.
NALP’s Principles & Standards are guidelines that offer an ethical framework for all participants in law student recruiting. They guide the timing of responses to offers and set forth the obligations of all participants in the recruiting process. Compliance with the Principles is voluntary, yet virtually all ABA-accredited law schools and many of the nation’s legal employers subscribe to these guidelines.
For more information on NALP guidelines, particularly those affiliated with interviewing and hiring, please visit their website.
Professional Development Office Equal Opportunity Policy
The S.J. Quinney Utah College of Law at the University of Utah supports the policy of equal employment opportunity as set forth in Section 6.3(b) of the Bylaws of the Association of American Law Schools: “A member school shall pursue a policy of providing its students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, or sexual orientation. A member school shall communicate to each employer to whom it furnishes assistance and facilities for interviewing and other placement functions the school’s firm expectation that the employer will observe the principle of equal opportunity.”
Use of any S.J. Quinney resources such as job boards, email systems or facilities of any kind are contingent upon an employer’s strict adherence to this policy of non-discrimination.
Unfortunately, inappropriate interviewing behavior is still a reality, and illegal or unacceptable inquiries, behavior or considerations too often continue to enter into recruiting activities and decisions. The S.J. Quinney College of Law Professional Development Office deplores discrimination and unfair employment and placement practices whenever and wherever they occur. Such practices taint the recruiting process and undermine the ethical foundations of the legal profession. We urge anyone using our resources to report illegal or discriminatory hiring practices to us by any means practicable.
Please write or call the PDO Director, Jess Hofberger at Jess.Hofberger@law.utah.edu or 801-581-8700 to report unlawful employment practices.
