Legal Issues & Insurance

Every event at Northeastern that involves external venues or vendors requires two things: a written contract and a certificate of insurance. Since legal concerns are some of the most sensitive aspects of event planning, the Office of University Events maintains a strong relationship with the Office of the University Counsel and the Risk Services department, working collaboratively to navigate through issues related to insurance, contracts and other legal matters.
