The University is an equal opportunity educational institution and employer. All student and employment-related programs, services and decisions will be administered without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, pregnancy, age, physical disability, mental disability, or other characteristic protected by federal or state law. Students who believe employers have violated USD School of Law's non- discrimination policy should contact the Assistant Dean for Career and Professional Development.
You should only submit applications to employers for whom you would consider working. If you are chosen for an on-campus interview, you must accept and attend the interview. If you are not available to interview on the day or at the location an employer is scheduled to interview, do not submit an application to that employer.
If you are selected for an interview, you will receive an e-mail from Career and Professional Development instructing you to select an interview time. If you do not select an interview time within the allotted time period, Career and Professional Development will assign an interview time to you. Even if this interview time conflicts with other commitments, you are responsible for attending your interview.
Should an unforeseen emergency preclude you from attending an interview, you must seek permission from Paula Gluzman, Assistant Director of Employer Outreach and Communications, to cancel your interview. Emergency circumstances will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, however, non-refundable travel arrangements are not a valid excuse. If Ms. Gluzman agrees to excuse you from your interview, you must write the employer a letter of apology explaining your absence and submit a copy of this letter to Career and Professional Development within 48 hours of the scheduled interview.
If you do not comply with this policy, you may lose the privilege of participating in on-campus recruiting or receive other appropriate consequences at the discretion of Ms. Gluzman.
Any misrepresentation in your job application materials (including rounding up your GPA or rounding down your class rank) may be a violation of Section 3.02 of the USD Law Honor Code. Misrepresentations may result in severe sanctions from the Law School.
Career Services will not submit your application materials to an employer if a staff member is aware of any misrepresentation. It is your responsibility to ensure your application materials accurately state all material facts, including class rank, GPA, awards and extracurricular activities.
Students must agree to give consent for Career and Professional Development to release their uploaded documents for Fall Recruiting Program participation.Back to top
