Professor Fleischer, who specializes in tax policy and charitable giving, joined the Colorado Law faculty in 2005. She has also taught as an Associate Professor at the University of Illinois College of Law and as an Acting Assistant Professor at NYU (where she served as assistant editor of the Tax Law Review). Professor Fleischer previously worked as an associate in the estate planning and exempt-organizations groups at Shaw Pittman LLP and as a litigator at the Institute for Justice, a Washington, D.C.-based public interest group, which piqued her interest in charitable giving. She also clerked for Judge Morris Sheppard Arnold on the Eighth Circuit. Her research focuses on the interaction of tax policy, charitable giving, and distributive justice.
