The Student Affairs & Career Services Office has a number of policies that are in place regarding our services and resources so that students, alumni, and employers who conduct business with our office are treated in an honest, fair, and unbiased manner. Please see the individual policies for additional details.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The University of La Verne College of Law is committed to a policy that opposes discrimination on the basis of gender, age, race, religion, color, medical condition, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, employment-related matters, financial aid programs, or other such University administered programs. The University of La Verne is an equal opportunity educational institution.

To ensure equal employment opportunity for all students and alumni, La Verne Law makes its facilities and services available only to those employers whose practices are consistent with the above policy of nondiscrimination.

Policy Regarding Military On Campus Recruitment

The University of La Verne College of Law provides career services to all La Verne Law students and graduates on an equal opportunity basis.  We do not knowingly furnish assistance or allow use of our facilities for interviewing and other career related functions to persons, firms, agencies, or organizations that discriminate in their selection of candidates for employment on the basis of  race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, physical disability, sexual orientation, or marital, parental, or veteran status.  We expect employers who recruit on campus and/or use La Verne Law facilities to abide by our Non-Discrimination Policy.

Employers who request to use La Verne Law career services in any manner are notified of our Non-Discrimination Policy.  La Verne Law informs employers that by utilizing our services, they are agreeing to abide by this policy.  Employers are expected to consider each candidate on the basis of his or her individual merits.

Please be advised that the United States Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Marines) discriminate on the basis of age, physical disability, and sexual orientation.  Under the Solomon Amendment, any school that prohibits the military from recruiting on campus will be denied certain federal funds.  Thus, La Verne Law allows the military to use law school services and facilities for recruitment purposes, even though we strenuously object to their discriminatory policies.

If you feel that you have been a victim of discrimination by any on campus interviewer, please contact the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs & Career Services, August Farnsworth at (909) 460-2016 or afarnsworth@laverne.edu.
