Policy on Non-Discrimination
The J. Reuben Clark Law School provides equal opportunity in legal education for all persons, including faculty and employees with respect to hiring, continuation, promotion, and continuing faculty status, applicants for admission, enrolled students, and graduates, without discrimination or segregation on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sex, gender (including identity and expression), sexual orientation, age, or disability. The Law School provides equal opportunity regardless of status in these categories. Notwithstanding the above, consistent with the Law School’s religious affiliation and purpose, the University and the Law School regulate conduct that is inconsistent with essential elements of the religious values and beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. All members of the Law School community are required to comply with the Brigham Young University Honor Code. The Law School, as is permitted by accreditation standards and the Association of American Law Schools, also prefers faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in employment.
Any law student who feels that he or she has been subject to discrimination prohibited by the above policy should contact Assistant Dean Wendy Archibald, 338 JRCB, or may contact the University Equal Employment Office, A-285 ASB.
