The Appalachian School of Law opposes discrimination in the interviewing and employment of our students and alumni based upon age, race, color, gender, disability, religion, national and ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. Per ABA Standard 205(d), Appalachian School of Law expects that all employers 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. The facilities and services of the law school's Career Services Office are available to those employers who observe the same principles of equal opportunity and non-discrimination. Under threat of withdrawal of federal funds posed by federal law through the Solomon Amendment, ASL grants a limited exception to the non-discrimination policy by allowing the military to recruit on campus.
