About Us

Our Mission

The Office of General Counsel manages and coordinates legal services for the University of Delaware. The Office serves the University by:

  • educating University personnel about legal requirements and risks to prevent or reduce liabilities and disputes;
  • providing legal advice to ensure compliance with legal requirements, and reducing exposure to legal risks;
  • representing the University as legal counsel in judicial and governmental proceedings, and advocating and defending its interests in those proceedings;
  • coordinating the provision of all legal services for the University, whether through the Office or outside legal counsel, to ensure efficiency, containment of costs, and reliability of service.

The Office’s three objectives, always, are to provide the highest quality of service, to manage legal matters in a timely and responsive fashion, and to observe the highest standards of professional ethics and integrity.
