CSU General Counsel

Specialty Subject Matter Assignments

By virtue of the client we serve, most of the lawyers in the Office of General Counsel are of necessity generalists. Nonetheless, as the practice of higher education law has become more complex, and the demands of our client more sophisticated, the need for greater depth in specialty subject matter areas of the law has grown. The Office of General Counsel has therefore organized to allow individuals to develop various levels of specialization.  The following resource attorneys have the responsibility to keep abreast of the current status of their assigned area of law and to be available to work with generalist colleagues when these issues come up.  CSU campus representatives can access these resource attorneys through the University Counsel assigned to their campuses.
