Sharon Jacobs joined the University of Colorado Law School faculty in 2014 as an Associate Professor. Professor Jacobs graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School in 2009, where she was the Executive Articles Editor of the Harvard Law and Policy Review. After graduation, Professor Jacobs practiced in the energy and environmental regulatory groups at Covington & Burling LLP in Washington, D.C. She then spent two years as a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School.
Professor Jacobs's research focuses on the impact of regulatory structure and process on policy outcomes in energy and environmental law. Recent projects have focused on agency decisionmaking in the context of electricity regulation, greenhouse gas policy, and species preservation; agency strategies to "bypass" federalism limitations in the context of programs to encourage management of electricity demand (demand response); and methods of adapting existing legal constructs to new actors in electricity markets. She teaches Environmental Law, Energy Law, Administrative Law, Legislation and Regulation, and related courses.
Prior to attending law school, Professor Jacobs was a professional classical cellist.
