From time to time, certain university records are required for litigation. Subpoenas and other court orders, such as requests for production, are the legal documents issued by courts which require the University to produce certain records. As long as the subpoena or court order is valid, the University is obligated to comply with it. If a court order or subpoena is issued to produce student records, the University is usually obligated to notify the student of this fact. Please contact the University Archives or the Legal Advisor's Office should your department or unit receive a subpoena or other court order for university records.
