The general counsel manages the legal affairs of the university, from contracts and intellectual property, to the oversight of litigation and the hiring of outside counsel.
The general counsel also provides in-house legal services to NU's Board of Trustees, administration, and faculty. This responsibility ranges from monitoring compliance with state, federal, and local law, to consulting on the day-to-day issues that arise at a busy, forward-thinking university.
It is the challenge and privilege of the general counsel to harmonize the legal considerations of Niagara University, an educational institution with an extensive history, a mission and a well-defined vision for the future.
