General Counsel

Welcome to the website for the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) at Roger Williams University. 

The OGC was established in 2003 as the in-house legal affairs division of the University. The OGC protects and advances the legal interests of the University by providing representation, advice, research, opinions, policy writing and training on behalf of the University, including 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.
