NALP Policies

Virtually all ABA-accredited law schools, including UIC Law School and many legal employers, are members of the National Association for Law Placement (NALP). As an NALP member school, all UIC Law students are expected to follow the recruiting rules set by the organization.

The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) was organized in 1971 to promote the exchange of information and cooperation between law schools and employers. In order to advance those interests, the association has developed Principles For a fair and Ethical Recruitment Process. These principles are listed below.

Principles For a Fair and Ethical Recruiting Process

  1. General Principles
  2. Principles for Employers
  3. Principles for Law Schools
  4. Principles for Candidates

NALP encourages law schools and employers to approach the career counseling and recruitment processes in the spirit and with the ideals that these principles embody.
