Chapman University’s Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Misconduct Policy

Chapman University is an equal opportunity employer committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic global community. Visit Chapman University’s Title IX page to access the university's complete policies regarding harassment, discrimination, and sexual misconduct. Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law and its Career Services Office (CSO) firmly expect that employers who interview or hire Chapman University Fowler School of Law students, mentors who work with the Chapman University Fowler School of Law community, and those who engage with our students will observe such principles. Use of the CSO’s resources, including Symplicity, and use of the law school’s facilities by any employer constitutes a representation by the employer that its employment practices are in accord with the Chapman University's Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Harassment Policy. A limited exception to this policy exists for military recruiters and federal agencies but only insofar as their employment and hiring practices are permitted under federal law.

Reciprocity Policy

Our Reciprocity Policy is designed to fulfill our primary responsibility to serve Chapman University Fowler School of Law students and graduates while offering employment information to job candidates from other law schools. The Career Services Office is pleased to accept requests for reciprocity from ABA-accredited law schools that extend similar services.

  1. Requests for reciprocity must be made in writing via email by the Career Services Office of the student's/graduate's law school. Please include the requestor's email and graduation year in the email request.
  2. Reciprocity services include temporary online access to our online job listings. Reciprocity services are granted at the discretion of the Career Services Office. Reciprocity services do not include individual advising, resume and cover letter review services, on-campus interviews, or the ability to borrow books or videos. Reciprocity services will be granted to the same extent that Chapman University Fowler Law School students and alumni receive reciprocity from the requesting school
  3. Reciprocity is granted for a period of three months, after which time the student/graduate will need to reapply for reciprocity. A reciprocity guest may only make a request once in an academic year.
  4. No services will be granted during recruiting seasons: June 1 - September 30 and December 15 – the last day of February.
  5. The Career Services Office may restrict or revoke reciprocity privileges to any individual who misuses the facilities or services or to any law school surpassing a reasonable number of requests within any academic year.
  6. The Career Services Office reserves the right to modify our Reciprocity Policy at any time, without advance notice.
