A profile in The Boston Globe examines the work of Ray Cotton, a Washington lawyer who frequently negotiates contracts for college and university presidents. The profile notes that Cotton has negotiated some benefits for college presidents that have been questioned as too generous for institutions to provide. Cotton's supporters note that he has an awareness of issues facing college presidents that non-specialists would miss, but others suggest that colleges that negotiate with Cotton are at a disadvantage as they don't have a counterpart on whom to rely.
