Welcome to Princeton University’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC).  OGC’s goal is to provide practical, timely advice on the broad range of legal issues that confront the University.  To support the University’s educational mission, our team of in-house attorneys and administrative staff works closely with University leaders, administrators, and others in the University community to address all legal matters arising out of the activities of Princeton University.

We invite you to explore our website, which is designed to familiarize the University community with our office and services.  There are answers to frequently asked questions and other legal resources that we hope you find helpful.  And if you have a specific legal question but do not know whom to contact, please visit our Areas of Practice page; the appropriate contacts are listed under each topic.
