    Revised July 2011


    Law School Policy

    The Washington and Lee University School of Law opposes discrimination in employment based on sex, age, race, religion, national origin, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, veteran's status, genetic information or any other legally impermissible or irrelevant ground. The facilities and services of the School are available only to those employers whose practices are consistent with this statement, and use of the facilities and services of the School of Law is construed as an affirmation by the employer that it does not so discriminate in selecting employees at any stage of the employment process. The Association of American Law Schools has taken the position that the current employment practices of the United States Armed Services do discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, and has granted a limited exemption to permit Armed Services representatives to recruit on campus due to the potential loss of funding to the University that would result from the Solomon Amendment.
