About the Office of University Counsel
Led by Senior Vice President and General Counsel Mary Jeka, the Office of University Counsel (OUC) handles a broad spectrum of legal issues involving the university, including operations, litigation, student issues, real property and construction, fundraising, environmental and other government regulations, intellectual property (including copyright and use of the Tufts University name), employment, tenure, finance and investment, academic affiliation, trust administration, and general legal policy.
Our goals are to provide, manage, and coordinate quality legal services for the university; minimize legal risks and costs; reduce litigation; and promote legal compliance. We aspire to provide these services efficiently, reliably, and professionally.
