Non-Discrimination policy

In accordance with Section 6-3 of the Bylaws of the Association of American Law Schools and Standard 211(d) of the American Bar Association, the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all its students and graduates, commensurate with their abilities and not limited by invidious discrimination, including discrimination based on, race, sex, age, religion, color, national origin, handicap, disability, sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender identity, gender expression or any basis forbidden by applicable law or university regulation. Employers who partner with our office to recruit students and alumni agree that they are also committed to this principle.

Statement on independent contractors

UMKC School of Law recognizes that law students performing legal work cannot function as independent contractors under employment law and that employing students under these terms is inconsistent with the rules of professional conduct (Rule 5.1). Therefore, the Office of Career and Professional Development will not advance positions seeking to hire law students as independent contractors and discourages students from seeking or taking such positions.
