Non-Discrimination Policy

Updated February 19, 2020

Non-Discrimination Policy

Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law does not discriminate on the ground of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, or sexual orientation in any of its educational policies, admissions, financial aid, employment, educational programs, or activities. Although the School of Law does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, sexual conduct outside marriage is inconsistent with the University’s religious traditions, values, affiliation, and purpose. Therefore, in accordance with ABA Standard 205 and Interpretation 205-2, the School of Law does not knowingly employ individuals who engage in such conduct; the School of Law also expects its students to avoid using the law school’s (or University’s) facilities, resources, or names to advocate such conduct. Also, in accordance with Standard 205 and Interpretation 205-2, the School of Law exercises a preference in employment of faculty and staff for those qualified applicants who are members of the Church of Christ whose lifestyles are consistent with the mission of the School of Law and with the beliefs and values of the Church of Christ. In cases where no qualified applicant is a member of the Church of Christ, the School of Law exercises a preference in employment for those whose religious beliefs and lifestyles are consistent with the mission of the School of Law and with the beliefs and values of the Church of Christ.
