Skip Navigation LinksA0204 A0204 Services of Legal Counsel


​College business may require the procurement of legal services. These services, when required on behalf of the College, may be requested from outside legal counsel only through the Western District Board chairperson or the president, or their designees.

When a board member believes there is a need for legal counsel on behalf of the College, a request should be made to the board chairperson for approval. When a College administrator believes there is a need for legal counsel on behalf of the College, a request should be made to the president, or his/her designee.

When the above-named persons conclude that unusual amounts of legal service may be required, the board chairperson or president shall inform the board of the matter.

Legal counsel will be established annually by the District Board during its July organizational meeting and formalized through an engagement letter. Retainer agreements will not be utilized nor will fringe benefits be applied to legal services.
