Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The Office of General Counsel records document the financial and legal matters involving the University and the Office of General Counsel. While the records contain information that predates the formation of the office, the majority of the material dates from the official inception of the position of University Counsel in 1972. The records relate to legal matters involving litigation over estates, trusts, and gifts, as well as discrimination and injury cases involving University employees. In addition, information regarding financial audit and tax reports to several government agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service, can be found within these records.
