Prior to joining the Colorado Law faculty in 2005, Professor Spitz studied law at Cornell Law School, the European University Institute, and the University of British Columbia. In addition, she clerked at the Supreme Court of British Columbia. A recipient of several fellowships, including a John M. Olin Foundation Fellowship, a British Columbia Law Foundation Graduate Fellowship, and a Gender, Sexuality & Family Project Scholarship, Professor Spitz's research focuses on regulatory and constitutional aspects of transnational economic integration in North America. She is especially interested in the relationship between corporate/commercial law, transnational private ordering, and what might be described as "public goods."

Professor Spitz has practiced transactional law in Canada and the United States, and taught commercial law at both Emory University and the University of New Mexico. Presently, Professor Spitz sits on the board of directors of the American Board of Certification, a non-profit organization that certifies American attorneys as specialists in Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights. In her four years at Colorado, she has twice been honored with the Outstanding New Faculty Award.
