Ind. Law - Daniels replaces long-time Purdue attorneys with his former chief counsel

Posted a few minutes ago by the online Lafayette Journal Courier:

Purdue President Mitch Daniels today announced changes to the university’s legal counsel.

Starting Feb. 1, Steve Schultz will join Purdue in the position of legal counsel. He will manage the legal function and oversee the delivery of legal services to the university, as well as perform such professional services as may be requested by the president and the board of trustees, according to a memo from Daniels.

Schultz will report directly to the president and to the board of trustees. His appointment will be formally ratified by trustees at the Feb. 8 meeting.

Schultz is an Indianapolis native and was Daniels’ first chief counsel when he was governor. * * *

The role of lead counsel to the university has historically been filled by members of the firm of Stuart & Branigin. * * *

Daniels thanked Stuart & Branigin for their longstanding service to the university.
