The Office of University Counsel engages outside counsel to work on particular matters when considerations such as cost and specialized subject matter make it appropriate to do so. University personnel should not contact outside counsel concerning University business without prior consultation with University Counsel. Similarly, all communications from outside attorneys should be referred to University Counsel.
The Office of University Counsel represents the University, including individual Lincoln Memorial University officials acting in their official capacities. The Office does not represent individual faculty, students, staff members or administrators in personal legal matters outside the scope of their business as University officials.
From time to time, members of the University community need personal legal advice or representation. Faculty and staff may obtain a free telephone consultation with an attorney through WorkLife Matters, an employee assistance program provided through Guardian Life Insurance. Contact information for this company is available at http://www.ibhworklife.com.
The Office of University Counsel is familiar with the legal resources available in the area and is pleased to provide general information about how members of the community may obtain legal assistance. Except to identify outside attorneys who may be available to provide such services, the University plays no role in the engagement. The individual must make his or her own arrangements, including fee arrangements, with the outside attorney.
