The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) serves as legal counsel for DePaul University. The core mission of the OGC is to provide high-quality, practical, and effective legal advice and counsel to help DePaul meet its goals as an institution of higher education.

In serving the interests of the university, the OGC strives to offer proactive and preventative counsel aimed at avoiding or reducing exposure to legal risks.
