UMB Notice of Non-Discrimination »

Law Student Employment

In accordance with ABA standards, the School of Law does not permit full-time law students to be employed more than 20 hours per week during the academic year. Additionally, the School of Law discourages facilitating employment of first-year, full-time (Day Division) students during their first academic year. The Career Development Office reserves the right not to post position listings that are inconsistent with its policies.

Unpaid Positions

To facilitate hiring practices that comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Career Development Office will only list or advertise unpaid positions affiliated with School of Law academic programs, and public service and not-for-profit organizations. We encourage prospective employers that are recruiting for unpaid positions at for-profit institutions to consult U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) guidelines. The Career Development Office reserves the right not to post or advertise position listings that are inconsistent with its employment policies or DOL guidelines.

Credit for Externship Opportunities

To determine whether UM Carey Law students may receive credit for externships, please see the School of Law’s Policy Statement on Externships. For additional information about externships, contact Crystal Edwards, Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs and Lecturer in Law, cedwards@law.umaryland.edu.

Position Listings

Employers that contact the CDO to post job listings are required to affirm that they will observe the CDO’s non-discrimination policy. As a service to students and graduates, the CDO also actively reviews Internet job boards and classifieds in search of job and intern postings for the benefit of UM Carey Law job-seekers. Further, our office receives from third-parties job listings that we verify and then post in the UMD-Symplicity Job Bank. While some of these job listings include non-discrimination employer policies, some of the listings do not include employer non-discrimination policies. In these cases, we will provide within the individual job posting links to the original source or the specific employer’s websites. By posting these job listings from third-party sources, the CDO does not represent that these employers are in full compliance with the School of Law’s non-discrimination policy.
