Welcome to the website for the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) at Roger Williams University.
The OGC was established in 2003 to improve the efficacy of prudent and required legal affairs on behalf of the University. Staffed with two in-house attorneys and one legal assistant, the OGC addresses University legal matters. Services provided include representation, advice, research, opinions, policy writing and training on behalf of the University, which includes the Board of Trustees, University administration, faculty, and staff (and occasionally others acting on their behalf) of the University.
The OGC does not provide legal advice or representation to individual members of the University community with respect to personal matters or personal legal issues.
The OGC reports jointly to the Board of Trustees and the President.
