Recruitment information for employers
We are here to help employers post available positions to the students and graduates of the S.J. Quinney College of Law. Through our Student On-Line Job Board or our On Campus Interview (“OCI”) program, we connect students with a number of employers including law firms, courts, businesses, government agencies and non-profit organizations.

Professional Development Office Equal Opportunity Policy
The S.J. Quinney Utah College of Law at the University of Utah supports the policy of equal employment opportunity as set forth in Section 6.3(b) of the Bylaws of the Association of American Law Schools: “A member school shall pursue a policy of providing its students and graduates with equal opportunity to obtain employment, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, or sexual orientation. A member school shall communicate to each employer to whom it furnishes assistance and facilities for interviewing and other placement functions the school’s firm expectation that the employer will observe the principle of equal opportunity.”
It is the S.J. Quinney College of Law’s firm expectation that every employer who receives assistance of any kind will observe the principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability in regard to hiring, promotion, retention and conditions of employment. Failure to do so will result in immediate termination of assistance.
Unfortunately, inappropriate interviewing behavior is still a reality, and illegal or unacceptable inquiries, behavior or considerations too often continue to enter into recruiting activities and decisions. The S.J. Quinney College of Law Professional Development Office deplores discrimination and unfair employment and placement practices whenever and wherever they occur. Such practices taint the recruiting process and undermine the ethical foundations of the legal profession. We urge anyone using our resources to report illegal or discriminatory hiring practices to us by any means practicable.
Please write or call the PDO Director, Jess Hofberger at Jess.Hofberger@law.utah.edu or 801-581-8700 to report unlawful employment practices.
