Legal Topics


A variety of legal issues affects the University, its employees, and its students.  The Legal Topics included on these pages (see left side menu) highlight some common issues, but they are intended as general guidance only and should not be interpreted as professional legal advice.  To obtain legal advice on legal matters involving or affecting the University, please contact the Office of Legal Affairs. (The OLA provides comprehensive legal advice and assistance to the UNC Charlotte Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, the other senior administrators of the University, and through them, to the University‚Äôs faculty and staff, only on legal matters involving or affecting the institution.)

Starting in 2017, the Office of Legal Affairs will begin offering monthly open training sessions to UNC Charlotte staff and faculty on a variety of legal topics.  Click here to see upcoming sessions.
