The Office of Legal Affairs provides legal advice and support services to Georgia Southern University and its administration. Please feel free to contact us if you should have any legal questions involving University business.

Our office serves as the liaison between the institution and the system-level legal staff, as well as the Georgia Attorney General’s office. Please do not contact these offices without consulting with the Georgia Southern Office of Legal Affairs first.

The Office of Legal Affairs cannot offer legal advice or services to students. If you are a student in need of legal advice or legal services, we suggest you contact the Office of the Dean of Students for information about legal services the SGA provides for Georgia Southern students.

In addition, we are unable to offer legal advice or services to faculty or staff regarding their own legal concerns. If you need legal services for yourself, you should contact one of the excellent attorneys in the local office. If you are unable to pay for legal services, you may be eligible for assistance through the Georgia Legal Services Program.
