UMB Notice of Non-Discrimination »

Law Student Employment

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

Position Listings Advertised by CDO

Employers that post position listings in the CDO Job Bank are required to affirm that they will observe UMB’s non-discrimination policy. Additionally, the CDO seeks and obtains position listings from alumni, employer contacts, Internet job boards and third-party recruiters as a service to students and graduates.  While all position listings are verified prior to publishing to job-seekers, some listings from external sources do not include organizational employment non-discrimination policies. In these cases, the CDO encourages job-seekers to use contact information within the listings to review the organizational employment policies. Further, by posting position listings obtained from third parties and other external sources, the CDO does not represent that the organizations featured in the listings comply with UMB’s non-discrimination policy.
