Bio:
Amy Griffin joined the Colorado Law faculty in 2012 as the law school's first Student Legal Writing Engagement Coordinator. Colorado Law added this new position to ensure that second- and third- year students continue to have access to comprehensive one-on-one legal writing support. Thus, in addition to teaching an advanced legal writing course, Amy works individually with students to continue the development of their legal writing skills throughout law school. Amy is available to work with students on all types of legal writing, including law journal notes, seminar papers, independent research projects, externship assignments, and writing in the clinics. In this role, Amy seeks to ensure that every Colorado Law student has multiple opportunities to develop the legal writing skills necessary for practice.

Prior to joining Colorado Law, Amy taught Legal Writing and Appellate Advocacy to first-year students at Notre Dame Law School, where in 2009 the Notre Dame Black Law Students Association named her Faculty Member of the Year. Amy practiced law as an associate attorney in the commercial litigation department of Otten, Johnson, Robinson, Neff & Ragonetti, P.C. before beginning her teaching career.
