The Office of Special Counsel has two main functions. In terms of legal affairs, we provide information on all campus legal issues and serve as legal counsel to the President. On the labor relations side, we are responsible for insuring compliance with the Professional Staff Congress/CUNY agreement. The Professional Staff Congress is the faculty and professional staff union.
Because legal and union related issues touch many areas of the college, we work very broadly across the campus and partner with many other offices on specific projects. Our approach to providing legal service is one of prevention. We welcome any questions you may have about ethics, legal liability, compliance, or college and University policies and procedures. If the issue is something we don’t specifically address, we can point you to the right person.
Our office provides ethics training, and in the spirit of preventive law, we offer workshops or information sessions on legal and union contract issues. We will also notarize your signature, as long as you bring your ID. I wish you much success in your career at Lehman College and, once again, welcome. More Information
