Our Mission

We are a professional team of legal advisors who provide creative and pragmatic counsel and solutions to faculty, staff and trustees in all University legal matters. We strive to deliver excellent legal services with attention to ethics, responsiveness, collaboration and humor.

Who Are Our Clients

The office provides legal and risk management advice on a wide variety of matters to the Board of Trustees, Senior Officers, other university administrators, and faculty and staff who are acting on behalf of the university. We do not represent or advise faculty, staff or students about personal legal matters. For personal legal advice, employees should consult a private attorney. As an employee benefit, Regis University offers a pre-paid legal plan.
