The Regents of the University of California, Office of General Counsel and Office of Risk Services are conducting a Request for Proposals to select a limited number of preferred outside law firms to represent the University and its employees in litigation under its General Liability Program.
General liability claims exposure is covered by the University’s General Liability Self-Insurance Program and typically involves third-party lawsuits alleging personal injuries (auto accidents, slip and fall, etc.), non-employee discrimination and harassment, ADA violations, libel, slander and invasion of privacy, appellate work and claims involving sexual violence/harassment/Title IX. This recruitment does not include employment, medical malpractice or professional liability-related lawsuits or police misconduct.
More information and the application is available on the university website.
Applications and supporting material will be accepted through October 15, 2019, and must be submitted in 1 PDF via email to General.firstname.lastname@example.org
Important considerations for the selection process include a demonstrated commitment to diversity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The University of California serves one of the world’s most diverse communities and draws its student body, its faculty, and its employees from a wide array of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. Providing effective legal representation and advice therefore demands that the University’s legal representatives and staff are capable of understanding and communicating with individuals from many backgrounds.
