Legal Counsel

The Office of Legal Counsel is charged with the prosecution and defense of all suits in which the Cambridge Public Schools and/or Cambridge School Committee is a part in state and federal courts and in administrative agencies. The Legal Counsel functions as a full-time office, handling nearly all of CPS' litigation in-house. In addition to this litigation function, the School Committee, Superintendent of Schools, school administrators and school department heads refer to the Legal Counsel for legal opinions on school-related matters. The Legal Counsel regularly attends School Committee meetings, assists in collective bargaining and drafts, reviews and approves a wide range of legal instruments required for the orderly accomplishment of CPS' operations.
