Legal Affairs

University Legal Affairs coordinates and supervises all legal services for Regis University by providing timely legal guidance; addressing existing and potential legal problems; reducing exposure to legal risk; and helping university units effectively and efficiently achieve their objectives.

The University is our client, but our legal services are provided to the Board of Trustees, Senior Officers, other university administrators, and faculty and staff who are acting on behalf of the university. We provide legal advice and representation to those employees acting within the scope of their duties, but we cannot provide personal legal advice to any individual. For personal legal advice, employees should consult a private attorney.
