History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

The Office of the General Counsel ("OGC") provides legal services to Columbia University. OGC attorneys advise the Trustees, Officers, Faculty, and Staff, all in their official capacities, on various issues impacting the University. Columbia first established an in-house legal department in 1974. Before 1974, an outside law firm acted as counsel to the University and any member of the University Community seeking legal services called directly on outside counsel. Since 1974 OGC represents the legal interests of the entire University, including such geographically separate entities as the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Rockland County, Nevis Laboratories in Westchester County, Reid Hall in Paris, and the entire Columbia Medical Center (formerly Health Sciences campus) in Washington Heights.
