The Office of Legal Affairs is the University of Georgia's in-house legal counsel. Attorneys in the Office of Legal Affairs provide legal advice and counseling to the University through its administrators, faculty, and staff in the course of their duties on behalf of the University. The Office of Legal Affairs does not provide legal advice to administrators, faculty, staff, or students in their individual capacities.
The Office of Legal Affairs consists of seven attorneys and three administrative staff. Every unit and college of the University has a designated attorney in the Office of Legal Affairs, while each attorney also has specific areas of subject matter expertise. Representatives of the Office of Legal Affairs can be contacted by calling 706-542-0006. We are located in the historic Lustrat House on North Campus. Regular office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
