Attorney-Client Privilege

Communications with lawyers in the Office of Legal Affairs are protected and regarded as confidential under the attorney-client privilege if the communications are made for the purpose of seeking or providing legal advice on behalf of the University. These communications may be revealed only to other University officials or other legal staff for the University who may need to know the information. Communications with attorneys on non-legal matters, or on personal legal matters, are not privileged or confidential. If you are unsure whether your matter is University-related or personal, it is best to check with the Office of Legal Affairs through a meeting or phone call before sending us any communication you may wish to remain confidential.
