As a law school accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA*), and as a member of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), 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, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability. Because of the Law School's religious affiliation and purpose, ABA standards and AALS regulations as applied to the Law School require equal opportunity on the basis of sexual orientation but not on the basis of conduct. All members of the Law School community are required to comply with the Brigham Young University Honor Code, which requires chastity outside of marriage and fidelity in marriage. The Law School, as is permitted by ABA standards and AALS regulations, also prefers faithful members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in employment.
Any faculty or staff member who feels 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.
