The Office of General Counsel (OGC) provides legal counsel to the State Board of Education, the State Superintendent of Education, and the State Department of Education. The OGC reviews and provides suggestions on interpretation of statutory and case precedent. In addition to legal compliance review, the OGC handles all litigation involving the department, the State Board, and the State Superintendent. The attorneys within the office advise local Alabama school systems as needed when issues of potential statewide impact arise.
