The Office of the General Counsel ("OGC") is MIT's law office. We provide legal advice, counseling, and service to MIT and represent the Institute in its legal matters. Our client is the Institute, not any individual or segment of the Institute. Our responsibility is to provide our best, independent advice in the interest of MIT. When appropriate, we engage outside counsel to provide additional expertise and representation.


MIT and Boston University School of Law have established two clinics for MIT students to obtain legal advice and assistance from BU law students. More more information visit our Personal Legal Resources page.
