Post on Job Board

Employers may post an on-line job announcement on our Symplicity on-line job board.  You may register for a free Symplicity account with the S.J. Quinney College of Law by visiting the website.  Please contact the Professional Development Office at 801-581-7767 or careers@law.utah.edu if you need assistance in registering for an account and/or posting a position.

 We are always available to connect employers with alumna and students in a more informal manner, such as by targeting specific classes with a job posting or temporary project via email and/or resume collection.  Call us at 801-581-7767 or email us at careers@law.utah.edu regarding any of your employment needs and together we can come up with the best approach to find you a qualified selection of candidates.

NALP Principles & Guidelines

The S.J. Quinney College of Law is a member of the National Association for Law Placement (NALP).  Originally formed in 1971, NALP is an association of over 2,500 legal career professionals who advise law students, lawyers, law offices, and law schools in North America and beyond.

NALP’s mission is outlined below:

* To provide vision and expertise in research and education for legal career counseling and planning, recruitment, employment, and professional development;

* To cultivate ethical practices and fairness in legal career counseling and planning, recruitment, employment, and professional development;

* To promote the full range of legal career opportunities and to foster access to legal public interest and public sector employment; and

* To advocate for diversity in the legal profession and in our membership.

NALP’s Principles & Standards are guidelines that offer an ethical framework for all participants in law student recruiting. They guide the timing of responses to offers and set forth the obligations of all participants in the recruiting process. Compliance with the Principles is voluntary, yet virtually all ABA-accredited law schools and many of the nation’s legal employers subscribe to these guidelines.

For more information on NALP guidelines, particularly those affiliated with interviewing and hiring, please visit their website.
