The University of California, Davis (Davis or the University) has engaged Major, Lindsey & Africa on an exclusive basis to conduct a search for a Chief Campus Counsel (CCC) who will be located at the Davis campus. Interested, qualified candidates should submit their resumes (in MS Word) to Major, Lindsey & Africa at UCDavisCCC@mlaglobal.com or to the MLA recruiter who contacted you about this position. Please do not contact the University or its personnel directly as all resumes sent via non-MLA channels will be routed to MLA for evaluation and may possibly create delays.
With a dual reporting structure to the General Counsel of the University of California system- wide and the Chancellor of UC Davis, the Chief Campus Counsel will be a strategic business and legal partner. The CCC will advise the Chancellor and other internal clients and also run the Davis Campus legal function. As UCD is a large, complex, multi-faceted graduate and undergraduate institution with a rich history of innovation on all fronts, the Chief Campus Counsel’s legal role will reflect that complexity and challenge. It is a highly visible role and requires transparency, collaboration, and a wide-angle lens when viewing the legal issues confronting the University.
