- Students are encouraged to promptly report any misrepresentation, discrimination, harassment, including sexual harassment, or other inappropriate conduct by employers in the recruitment process to their office of career services and following procedures outlined here: https://www.luc.edu/president/departments/administrativeservices/titlenine.shtml
- Students have a right of privacy against the illegal or inappropriate dissemination of personal information and not disclosing information protected by federal, state, or municipal law without proper consent as outlined here: https://www.luc.edu/law/currentstudents/registrar/recordsandforms/
Candidates should represent their qualifications and interests fully and accurately throughout the employment search process by:
- Providing, at the request of an employer, an appropriate resume and accurate copies of all academic transcripts, recognizing that should they fail to do so, or should they falsify documentation, they risk sanction from their law school, prospective employers, and/or bar admission authorities;
- Providing, at the request of an employer, original writing samples that explain the context in which the document was written and identify the extent to which third parties contributed to the document; and
- Masking or redacting writing samples from law-related employment to preserve client confidentiality and using such writings only with the permission of the supervising attorney.
Candidates are encouraged to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times during the recruitment process by:
- Adhering to all scheduling commitments during the on-campus interview process, canceling only for good cause and promptly communicating with the office of career services and the employer when cancellation is necessary;
- Responding promptly to all requests or invitations from an employer, and only accepting invitations for in-office interviews when the candidate has a genuine interest in working for the employer;
- Handling in a timely manner any changes or cancellations to an in-office interview, including cancellation of any travel arrangements;
- Reaching an understanding with an employer about its reimbursement policies prior to traveling, including prorating expenses for trips during which interviews with more than one employer occur in accordance with those employers' reimbursement policies; and
- Requesting reimbursement only for reasonable expenses directly related to the interview and incurred in good faith, recognizing that failure to observe this policy or falsification or misrepresentation of travel expenses may result in non-reimbursement, elimination from consideration for employment, and/or the revocation of offers by an employer.
Candidates are encouraged to promptly communicate with employers and their office of career services about their acceptance, rejection, or requests for deferrals of employment offers by:
- Abiding by the standards for candidate responses established by the employer and/or law school and notifying the employer as soon as a decision is made, even if that decision is made in advance of the prevailing response date;
- Acting in good faith to decline promptly offers for interviews and employment which are no longer being seriously considered by the candidate, in fairness to both employers and peers;
- Notifying the office of career services upon acceptance of any employment offer in order for law schools to comply with institutional reporting requirements;
- Withdrawing pending applications or canceling scheduled interviews with other employers after accepting an offer of employment;
- Holding open no more than three employment offers at any one time; and
- Apprising prospective employers of any intentions to seek or accept fellowships, judicial clerkships, or other limited term professional employment in order to obtain a clear understanding of the employer's offer deferral policies.
Candidates should honor their employment commitments by:
- Requesting all offers in writing and confirming offer modifications in writing, in order to avoid undue confusion regarding offer terms; and
- Notifying promptly, in writing, both the employer and office of career services if it becomes necessary for a candidate to modify or be released from their acceptance of an employment offer.
