General Counsel

The Office of General Counsel provides legal counsel to the University of North Georgia (including all of its Units and Departments) and its cooperative organizations (i.e., Research Foundation, Philanthropic Foundation, and the Real Estate Foundation). The Office of General Counsel advises these entities' administrators, faculty, and staff, in their official capacities, on various issues impacting the University.

Subpoenas and Summons

Any summons, subpoenas or other documents appearing to relate to a court action should be immediately referred to the Office of Legal Affairs.

Please send a copy of the document and your contact information to jenna.colvin@ung.edu and CC tamera.bardenwerper@ung.edu.

If You Have a Legal Issue...

The Office of General Counsel cannot provide advice on matters which do not concern the University of North Georgia's official business.

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 University of North Georgia students.

If you are faculty or staff and need legal services for yourself, you should contact a private attorney. If you are unable to pay for legal services, you may be eligible for assistance through the Georgia Legal Services Program or http://www.gabar.org/membership/membersearch.cfm.

If a legal issue arises as part of your job at the University of North Georgia, please contact the Office of General Counsel at 706-867-4571 or send your legal inquiries to jenna.colvin@ung.edu

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 University of North Georgia's Office of General Counsel first.
