Home

The Office of the University Counsel ("OUC"), led by University Counsel Elsa Kircher Cole, is the University’s law office. We provide legal advice and service to UNM and represent the University in its legal matters. Our client is the University of New Mexico, not any individual or segment of UNM. Our responsibility is to provide our best independent legal advice in the interest of UNM. When appropriate, we engage outside counsel to provide additional expertise and representation. Our Annual Report explains our office further.

Mission


Our mission is to facilitate transactions; to prevent legal problems and solve those that occur; to provide advice and representation; and to educate as to the laws, policies, and procedures applicable to UNM's operations; all in order to help the University  fulfill its goals of teaching, research, and service.
