RCCD hires new general counsel

Patrick Pyle has been hired as the new general counsel for the Riverside Community College District, according to Chancellor Michael Burke in an email to the faculty and staff.

Pyle, who was an associate dean and the general counsel for Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles since 2003, fills the position left by Ruth Adams, who retired earlier this year.

His duties include the responsibilities for all of RCCD contracts. Pyle will also make sure that new policies or changes to existing policies are reviewed and submitted to the Board of Trustees for consideration, according to Burke.
