The University does not tolerate discrimination or harassment based on or related to sex (including pregnancy), race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, protected veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or other protected categories, classes, or characteristics. Discriminatory behavior is prohibited regardless of the manner in which it is exhibited, whether verbally, in writing, by actions, or through electronic means.

Non-Discrimination Policy – Texas Tech University School of Law

Based on Texas Tech OP 40.01 and the By-Laws of the Association of American Law Schools, the School of Law will not tolerate discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, genetic information, protected veteran status, national origin, sex, gender (including identity expression), sexual orientation, age, or disability. Dated November 17, 2021.

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 ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender (including identity and expression), sexual orientation, age, or disability. Member schools 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 principal of equal opportunity.  AALS Bylaws Section 6-3b and AALS Regulation 6-3.2.

Employer Affirmation

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.
