Katherine Brooks has been promoted to the position of Associate University Counsel at Coastal Carolina University. Her duties will include serving as associate chief legal officer of the institution, handling Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, serving as legal counsel on various CCU committees and more.

She has served the University in the areas of risk management and contract management during the past year and is a member of the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA). She recently passed the South Carolina Bar Association exam and was sworn in on Nov. 7. “We are excited to have such an outstanding legal talent as Ms. Brooks,” said Meacham. “Her previous work in electronic contract management and risk management at CCU gives her the institutional knowledge required for the position. Her transition to associate university counsel is a natural fit and a definite plus for the Office of University Counsel and the entire Coastal Carolina University community.”
