We are the legal review team in charge of research contracts & agreements for researchers appointed to the Cumming School of Medicine and faculty researchers conducting clinical research.

The CSM Legal team assists with drafting, negotiation, and execution of contracts and agreements for Researcher’s who are conducting research through their Cumming School of Medicine appointment.

Before submitting a contract/agreement for us to draft or review, we ask you become familiar with the Type of Agreements our office handles and review the Before You Start page below to ensure you have all the relevant documentation for a complete submission. An incomplete submission will result in a delay in our team’s review of your matter. We also highly encourage you to become familiar with the Steps Required to get a signed agreement and review our FAQ Section which answers most of the questions we receive from PI and Project Coordinators on a daily basis.
