The attorneys in the Office of General Counsel represent Baylor University and do not represent faculty and staff on an individual or personal basis. However, by communicating with this office, faculty and staff members may be acting as representatives of Baylor so that there is a lawyer-client privileged communication. That means that the law allows most communications between a lawyer and a client to remain confidential.
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal privacy law which protects student education records at Baylor University.
