Policy of Equality


Non-Military Organizations

The Southern Illinois University at Carbondale School of law is committed to 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, disability, or sexual orientation. It is the School of Law’s firm expectation that employers to whom the School furnishes assistance or facilities for interviewing or other career services functions will observe this principle of equal opportunity.

In requesting assistance or facilities, employers are affirming their intent to abide by the above-stated policy.


Military Organizations

In accordance with Chapter 144 of the Illinois Revised Statues, paragraph 658b, the Armed Forces of the United States cannot be denied the use of Law School placement facilities because of armed forces compliance with rules, regulations, or policies of the United States government or any agency, branch or department thereof.

However, organizations covered by the aforementioned statute are expected to abide by a policy of providing equal opportunity to obtain employment without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age or disability.

In requesting assistance or facilities, employers are affirming their intent to abide by the above-stated policy.

The Military employment practice is inconsistent with the School of Law’s non-discrimination policy.
