The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University provides and will continue to provide equality of opportunity in legal education for all persons, including faculty and employees, with respect to hiring, continuation, promotion and tenure, applicants for admission, enrolled students, and graduates, without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
In compliance with applicable laws and the above-stated policy, the College of Law expects that all employers will consider, in good faith, each applicant on the basis of his or her individual merits.
The College of Law allows one exception to its non-discrimination policy for government agencies, such as the military, that are required by law to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. Notwithstanding this exception, the College of Law does not support the military's policy of discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. Federal statutes (commonly known as the Solomon Amendment) provide that law schools that deny access to military recruiters may be subjected to the loss of certain federal funds, including some financial aid for law students. Accordingly, a limited exception has been granted by the Association of American Law Schools to permit schools to let the military recruit on campus due to the potential loss of funding that would result from the Solomon Amendment.
The College of Law is committed to supporting a hospitable environment for all students and requires employers who use its facilities to sign a non-discrimination pledge. Please contact a member of the Career Services staff with any questions or concerns you may have.
