Areas of Practice

As the practice of higher education law continues to evolve and become more complex, the Office of Legal Counsel has recognized that its attorneys specialize in certain legal subject matters. The following legal subject areas are not intended to be inclusive of all legal issues that may arise, but are intended to be a guide to our attorney resources for certain specialty areas.

By virtue of the size and the sophistication of the University's activities, our attorneys provide advice on a variety of legal issues. In certain instances, we seek additional advice and representation from outside firms.
