Legal Affairs Organization Chart

Listed above are the members of the Legal Affairs staff, their contact information and their primary areas of responsibility. While you should feel free to contact any staff member for assistance, this list will help you to determine whom to call if you do not already have an established contact within the office. You may also simply call the office at extension 78738 and you will be directed to the appropriate staff member.

Communications with office lawyers are protected by the privilege for attorney-client communications, and therefore are confidential, if they are made for the purpose of seeking legal advice on behalf of the university. Such communications can be revealed only to other university officials, on a need-to-know basis.

Although e-mail communications are protected by the attorney-client privilege to the same extent as communications made by other means, e-mail is not completely secure. We therefore encourage you to exercise appropriate discretion in using e-mail to communicate with us about sensitive matters.
