As the role of the general counsel to colleges and universities continues to evolve, the attorney is increasingly seen as a strategic partner in all aspects of institutional operations. In this session, two general counsels—one from a public university and one from a private university—will join a business officer to discuss the most effective ways of creating a strategic partnership between the legal and business functions. They’ll cover partnering with the general counsel in risk identification, assessment, and management, plus how counsel’s knowledge of institutional governance can help advance business office and institutional goals.
- Leverage the perspectives brought by the general counsel to advance institutional goals and objectives.
- Create a positive and effective relationship with your institution’s general counsel.
- Clarify what a general counsel needs to know to best respond to a business officer’s needs.
