Student Handbook Introduction

The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law is fully committed to policies of equal opportunity, affirmative action, and respect for members of all minority communities. Accordingly, the law school prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, status as a veteran or disabled veteran of the American Armed Forces, or person with a disability. Evidence of practices not consistent with these policies should be reported to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Employee Relations, (801) 581-8365 (Voice or TDD).

The College of Law seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services, and activities for people with disabilities. Reasonable prior notice is needed to arrange accommodations. Although identifying yourself as a person with a disability is voluntary, the S.J. Quinney College of Law can accommodate only known disabilities. Students with documented disabilities will be accommodated as necessary if they have first been certified by the Center for Disabled Student Services, 160 Union Building, (801) 581-5020. For more information, or to discuss accommodations, contact the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, 102 Law, (801) 581-4032.

The College of Law strongly endorses the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act. State laws on the University of Utah campus will be enforced at all times and adjudicated in a court of law. Infractions of the University Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities will be referred to the Student Behavior Committee for sanctions and probation.

Information regarding University resources and services available to graduate students can be found in The University of Utah General Catalog and on the Web site (www.ugs.utah.edu/catalog).
