Welcome from the Vice President and General Counsel

On behalf of my colleagues in the Office of General Counsel (“OGC”), I welcome you to our website.  We hope the following pages show the high priority we place on providing first-rate legal services that are tailored to the needs of the DePaul Community. 

We value, respect and work with all members of the University community, from the trustees to those on the front lines educating men and women for beneficial roles in our society.  In broad terms, we see our role in two ways: zealously helping our clients meet their missions to our students, and proactively searching for and removing obstacles to those missions.

For many visitors to this website, this is the first introduction to the OGC.  We hope it is a good and useful one.  But if you cannot find your answer on the following pages, please do not hesitate to contact one of our lawyers.  They will be happy to help you in any way they can.

We look forward to working with you.
