Recruiting Policies

Recruiting Policies

We are happy to offer you the facilities and assistance of the Career Development Office at Baylor Law and hope we can help you find students who will meet your needs. We want to make you aware of the non-discrimination policies followed by the University and the Law School, and ask that you provide us with assurance of your willingness as employers to observe the same principles of equal opportunity.

Notice of Non-Discrimination

Baylor University complies with all applicable federal and state nondiscrimination laws. Baylor University admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, or veteran status to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, or veteran status in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. Baylor University is controlled by a predominantly Baptist Board of Regents and is operated within the Christian-oriented aims and ideals of Baptists. The University is also affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas, a cooperative association of autonomous Texas Baptist churches. As a religiously-controlled institution of higher education, the University is exempt from compliance with some provisions of certain civil rights laws.

As such, the University prescribes standards of personal conduct that are consistent with its mission and values. This policy statement is neither intended to discourage, nor is it in fact applicable to, any analytical discussion of law and policy issues involved, or to discussions of any recommendations for changes in existing law. Discussions of these matters are both practiced and are welcomed within our curriculum.

Equal Opportunity Obligation of Employers Using Law School Facilities

As a condition of the use of Law School facilities, we are required by the Association of American Law Schools, of which the Law School is a member, to ask that you provide us with assurance of your intent to observe the principles of non-discrimination on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnic origin, gender, age, disability in either employment or the provision of services, and sexual orientation per se. Thank you for your interest in our students and your cooperation in making our program successful.
