The Office of General Council also represents the University before state courts, administrative agencies, regulatory bodies, municipal boards, commissions and in various transaction-related negotiations. Additionally, the OGC coordinates the work of outside legal counsel retained to represent the interests of the University in judicial and administrative proceedings.
The OGC provides legal representation and counsel only pursuant to requests submitted to the OGC after the requests have been approved by the University’s president or a vice president. An Office of General Counsel request form is available through this site. The OGC does not provide legal services to individual University employees or students regarding personal legal matters, nor does it represent individual employees or students in judicial and administrative proceedings.
