Bio:

Andrew Schwartz joined the Colorado Law faculty in 2008. He teaches and publishes on corporate, securities and contract law.

Professor Schwartz studied Civil Engineering at Brown University and then attended Columbia Law School, where he served on the Columbia Law Review and assisted the late Professor E. Allan Farnsworth on his leading Contracts treatise. After law school, he clerked for two federal judges, the Hon. William A. Fletcher of the Ninth Circuit and the Hon. Naomi Reice Buchwald of the Southern District of New York, and practiced for several years with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.

Since entering academia, Professor Schwartz has published a number of articles in leading venues, including the UCLA, George Washington and Notre Dame law reviews. Several of his articles have won national awards, such as the AALS Scholarly Paper Competition (honorable mention, 2010) and the Federalist Society Young Legal Scholars Paper Competition (2011 and 2012). In 2011, he founded the annual "Junior Business Law Conference," an intimate scholarly workshop for some of the most promising junior business law scholars in the country, including faculty from Harvard, Columbia, NYU and Chicago.
