Administrative Announcement

TO: Officers, Deans, Directors and Chairs
FROM: Beth A. Harris, Vice President and General Counsel
SUBJECT: Retention of Outside Legal Counsel
DATE: November 18, 2002

I wish to reiterate the long-standing University policy that non-University attorneys may not be retained by departments, divisions and schools on University related matters. The decision to seek such representation must be made by the Office of Legal Counsel. The Office of Legal Counsel will negotiate the terms and conditions under which outside counsel represent the University.

Moreover, all such attorneys must report and be responsible to the General Counsel of the University.
