Davenport University’s external legal counsel supports the vision, mission and values of the university by providing legal advice and representation on matters relating to the performance of the institution’s responsibilities. Our legal resources cannot assist university employees or students with personal legal issues.

Legal services can be provided in a broad range of areas, including:

  • compliance with local, state and federal laws,
  • employment law,
  • preparation and review of contracts,
  • litigation in state and federal courts and administrative agencies,
  • policy development,
  • public records,
  • intellectual property
  • immigration
  • business transactions

Staff and faculty are encouraged to contact Risk Management at the inception of a project or at the first sign of a legal problem.  Early consultation with Legal will often avoid complications that could arise later.
