Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill.). Office of the University Attorney


Mission Statement:

The mission of the Office of General Counsel is to provide first class legal services to Northwestern University. While the University as an institution is our client, legal services are provided through the Board of Trustees, the President, the Provost, vice presidents, deans and heads of other academic units, administrative department heads, and other representatives of the University who raise questions relating to the interests of the University. This personalization of services makes it especially important that we place the institution’s needs and interests above those of any of its units or of any employee.
