Recruiting Policies & Guidelines

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY/ACCESS EMPLOYMENT STATEMENT
The LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center strives to provide equal opportunity/access employment for all its students without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran’s status, or other non-performance related criteria.  The LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center requires that all those who recruit on the campus are equal opportunity/access employers. 

DEPARTMENT REGISTRATION POLICY
Students should register with Career Services each Fall and Spring semester by uploading an updated resume to the Symplicity system.  By uploading your resume to Symplicity, you are authorizing the Career Services Office to release information to any prospective employer and are in agreement to the adherence of all department policies.  If you do not agree with these terms, you will need to contact the Director of Career Services prior to any use of Symplicity or the Career Services Office. 

RESUME ACCURACY POLICY
All law students are bound by the honor code to present only factual information on their resumes and other job application materials.  Resume fraud will not be tolerated.  If inaccuracies are discovered, the student: 

  • Will be reported to the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs resulting in possible disciplinary action
  • May be barred from using the Career Services Office
  • Must correct the misrepresentation on the resume
  • Must notify all employers to whom the resume was sent of the misrepresentation.

INTERVIEW NO-SHOW POLICY
In order to show courtesy to employers and to classmates, students are expected to keep any interview appointments they accept.  Students who need to cancel an interview, whether on or off campus, should do so at the earliest possible decision point.  It is important that employers be assured full interview schedules and that other students be given sufficient opportunity to sign up for interview slots if alternate selections are made.  Any student experiencing unusual circumstances that necessitate the need to cancel an interview must write a letter to the firm explaining the specific situation.  Letters should be submitted to the CSO Interview Coordinator prior to the interview.  Failure to cancel a scheduled interview will be viewed as a “no-show” and appropriate actions will be taken.  Such actions may include, but are not limited to, forfeiture of the use of the Career Services Office.
