Office of General Counsel

Welcome to the website of the Office of General Counsel (OGC). This site is intended to inform the W&L community about various University policies and procedures, to provide information on topical legal issues that may affect University operations, and to answer frequently asked questions. We also have provided links to W&L resources and legal research sites that may be useful to the W&L community. While it is our goal that you find this website helpful, please note that nothing on this site is intended to constitute legal advice. For specific legal advice, please contact an OGC attorney.


Signing Contracts for W&L

What do I do if I need to have a contract reviewed or prepared? Can I sign this agreement (contract / letter agreement / lease / purchase agreement) that's on my desk? Before you sign anything, consult the policy and know your obligation.
