The American Association of Law Libraries will accept two types of placement listings. The first section will include positions at institutions that have adopted or pursue policies not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity in the employment of librarians and staff. Following these listings will be a separate category for institutions having a religious affiliation or purpose that wish to exercise their rights under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to apply employment policies related to that affiliation or purpose. These provide a preference for persons adhering to the religious affiliation or purpose of the institution, but shall not be applied to preclude applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or sexual orientation. Any institution so exercising its Constitutional right shall make available to AALL and to interested applicants information explaining the religious beliefs, values, and practices of the institution so that informed decisions about whether to apply are possible.
