Office of General Counsel

Welcome to the website of the Office of the General Counsel (OGC). The OGC provides legal services to the University of San Francisco. The purpose of this website is to familiarize the University community with our office and its services. In addition, we answer frequently asked questions and provide links to University and legal resources. We hope this website provides a valuable first resource on legal matters related to USF.

The OGC is also responsible for employee and labor relations. Our office is in charge of negotiations and implementation of policies/procedures associated with collective bargaining, contract implementation, conflict resolution, administration, disciplinary and arbitration matters for represented faculty and staff at USF.

The OGC oversees the Office of Human Resources (HR). Our office works very closely with HR on protocol and policy development, staff and faculty compensation and benefits, and coordination of insurance and compliance matters.
