AALS Requirements on Equal Opportunity in Employment
The Association of American Law Schools (AALS), of which Tech Law is a member, requires member schools to pursue a policy of providing students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment, without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender (including identity and expression), sexual orientation, age, or disability. Member schools should inform employers of its obligation and require employers, as a condition of obtaining any form of placement assistance or use of the school’s facilities, to provide assurance of the employer’s willingness to observe the principle of equal opportunity. AALS Bylaws Section 6-3b and AALS Regulation 6-3.2.
As an employer seeking assistance and facilities for interviewing and other placement functions from Texas Tech Law, I affirm that Texas Tech Law has informed me of the University's nondiscrimination policies and the school's obligation under AALS Bylaws; and its expectation that each employer will observe the principle of equal opportunity. I provide this assurance of my willingness to observe the principles of equal opportunity and compliance with its nondiscrimination policies as a condition of obtaining any form of placement assistance or use of the school's facilities.
