Employer Policies

Non-Discrimination Policy Heading link

The University of Illinois Chicago School of Law (UIC Law) has always embraced diversity and equal opportunity. Our founders believed that a legal education should be available to any qualified person regardless of their economic station in life, or their “racial origin, sex, color, or religious affiliation.” That tradition continues.

UIC Law administers its services in a manner that honors this tradition and seeks to provide both an educational environment and equal employment opportunities for all Law School students and graduates.

The Law School, finding any invidious discrimination inconsistent with the mission of free academic inquiry, does not discriminate in admission, services, or employment on the basis of race (ethnicity), color, religion, sex, pregnancy, disability, national origin, citizenship status, ancestry, age, order of protection status, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, gender (including gender identity and gender expression), arrest record status, unfavorable discharge from the military, or status as a protected veteran (military status) or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

Use of UIC Law’s assistance, services, or facilities and services, including, but not limited to, for recruitment activities or otherwise indicates the members acceptance of and agreement to comply with the above-mentioned principles of equal opportunity and non-discrimination in regard to hiring, promotion, retention, and conditions of employment.

Grading Policy Heading link

Please note that class ranks are cumulative and include all courses taken by the student up to the end of a designated semester. The class rankings include all students within a given class who have earned a certain number of credit hours. This is particularly relevant because UIC Law has both full-time and part-time programs. We also admit students in January and in August. Thus, we have varying class sizes, and students may have a January or May graduation date. This will explain any references to a January graduation date on a student’s resume. Accordingly, a second-year student is anyone who will have completed at least three semesters of law school before the summer of their second year.
