The OGC provides legal advice and representation to the University. The University and all of its schools, colleges, departments and offices are one legal entity. In that capacity, the OGC attorneys advise the Administrators, Faculty and Staff, all in their official capacities, on various issues impacting the University.
If you are being sued as a result of activities performed within the scope of your University employment, with some exceptions, the Maryland Attorney General’s Office will provide representation. If you are being sued in your individual capacity for activities unrelated to the University representation is not provided.
