Office of the General Counsel

Welcome to the website of the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) of The University of Scranton.

This site is primarily designed to serve the information needs of the Board of Trustees, administrators, faculty, and staff with regard to various University policies and procedures, to provide topical legal issues that may affect University operations, and to answer frequently asked questions.  We also provide links to University resources and legal research that may be helpful to the Univeristy community.  

Please note, the materials presented on this website are provided as a service for the benefit of The University of Scranton community and are for informational purposes only. Nothing contained herein may be construed as legal advice from the Office of the General Counsel. Legal advice must be tailored to the specific facts and circumstances involved in a situation, so it is essential to consult counsel directly, rather than relying on general information.  All University personnel are invited and encouraged to contact our office for assistance on matters affecting the University.  However, the OGC does not provide personal legal services for University employees and students.
