Employers who wish to make use of the services and/or facilities offered by The University of Texas School of Law’s Career Services Office must agree with UT-Austin’s Equal Employment Opportunity Policy and the additional Recruiting Policies and Guidelines below.

When you create an employer account on UT Law Symplicity, you will be required to acknowledge that you have reviewed these policies and guidelines and that you agree to the following statement:

I have read and understand the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy of The University of Texas at Austin. It is my intent to consider all applicants on the basis of merit and not to discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, including sexual harassment, age, disability, citizenship, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression in compliance with the UT EEO Policy.

I further agree to adhere to the Principles and Standards set forth by NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals.

I understand that the Career Services Office can discontinue my access to employer services at any time if I am found in violation of these standards, policies and principles.

A limited exception to this policy exists for military recruiters, but only insofar as their employment and hiring practices are permitted under federal law. This exception to the University’s policy for military recruiters does not in any way reflect acceptance of, or agreement with, discriminatory hiring practices.
