The Office of the General Counsel serves as the in-house legal office for Ithaca College. As such, it assists the campus community in the development, interpretation, and application of College policies and provides legal advice relating to contracts, compliance with federal and state laws, and many other topics. In addition, the office is responsible for coordinating the College's response to litigation and federal and state agency inquiries.

Please note that the Office of the General Counsel provides legal advice to members of the campus community in their capacities as employees or agents of the College. As such, we do not provide personal legal advice to students, faculty, or staff. For information on obtaining personal legal advice, refer to our Frequently Asked Questions.
