Communications from Attorneys or Private Investigators

If contacted regarding an action, decision, communication, event, etc., that was taken, made, or occurred in the performance of your duties as a university employee—for example, you are a residence life coordinator and you are contacted regarding your role in a student conduct investigation—tell the attorney or the private investigator that they need to contact our office prior to speaking with you.

If contacted regarding an action, event, or communication that was taken in your individual capacity—for example you are contacted because you witnessed a car accident on your way to work—our office would not represent you individually and therefore you can choose to speak with the person or to not speak with that person. For events, matters, or actions that occurred in your individual capacity, you may also choose to seek independent legal advice prior to speaking with the attorney or private investigator.
