Jannine Mohr, an attorney in the Office of the General Counsel at Colorado State University, has been promoted to the senior leadership position of Deputy General Counsel, overseeing the legal office at the flagship institution of the CSU System.

In her new role, Mohr will manage the Fort Collins legal team, which includes six attorneys and five staff members. She was appointed to the deputy role by Jason Johnson, who previously served as deputy prior to becoming general counsel for the CSU System in January 2017. Mohr assumed leadership of the Fort Collins office in May.

Mohr has served as an attorney for CSU for more than a decade, joining the university legal team in 2008, where much of her work has focused on employment law and constitutional issues. Prior to serving as university counsel, Mohr worked in Denver as a trial attorney in private practice for eight years, litigating a wide range of legal subject areas.

Mohr earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2000 and served as a law clerk for the Hon. Barry Ted Moskowitz in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California before entering private practice. Prior to her law studies, she earned a Bachelor of Arts from Colorado State University.

Along with her legal work at the university, Mohr has presented on various legal topics both nationally and internationally, as well as spending time in the classroom, sharing her expertise with CSU students. She has taught the course Law in Student Affairs in the Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) program. SAHE students nominated Mohr for the 2014 College of Health and Human Sciences Best Teacher Award, and in 2018, she received the Dean’s Recognition Award from the College of Natural Sciences.

Mohr has also served as a staff member in the United States Senate. In 2011 and again in 2015, she was appointed by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper to serve on the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission, where she currently serves as chair.
