Retention of Counsel

The Office of Legal Affairs is the in-house corporate legal office for the Rochester Institute of Technology.  Staff, faculty, and students may not employ outside attorneys to represent or provide legal services for any RIT related purposes.  The decision to retain outside counsel resides with the General Counsel. In addition, only the General Counsel and his staff have the authority to enter into contracts for services with partner law firms.


The Office of Legal Affairs will not provide legal advice to any individual members of the RIT community relative to personal legal issues.  If you need assistance with a personal legal matter, please visit the Legal Referrals page:
