Richmond Law is a member of the National Association for Law Placement, and Richmond Law’s polices incorporate NALP’s Principles for a Fair and Ethical Recruitment Process, as adopted in December 2018, and the spirit of fairness and open dialogue among law schools, employers, and candidates that these principles incorporate.

General Provisions

All offers of employment should be confirmed in writing by the employer.

Students should familiarize themselves with employers’ individual recruiting policies and procedures and seek clarification relevant to the student’s individual circumstances as necessary.

Offer Consideration Period

Employers should provide Richmond Law students a period of consideration for offers of summer and post-graduate employment that is no less favorable than the period such employer provides for the students of any other law school.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The University of Richmond School of Law prohibits discrimination with regards to race, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, status as a veteran, or any classification protected by local, state or federal law.
The services and facilities of the Career Development Office are available only to those employers whose practices are consistent with this policy. The representatives of any employer using these services and facilities, in doing so affirm that the employer does not discriminate.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
