Jason Zolle

Former Manager

Jason Zolle was a manager at IAALS, working across our state and federal civil justice projects, including the Civil Justice Initiative, discovery protocols, and dispositive motions. As a manager, he provided a wide range of support to committees and working groups that IAALS has convened as part of its many projects to increase access to justice.

After graduating from Michigan Law School in 2014, Zolle clerked for the Honorable Corinne A. Beckwith on the D.C. Court of Appeals and the Honorable Ronald M. Gould on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He then moved back home to Denver to work for the appellate division of the Colorado Public Defender, where he litigated criminal appeals in the Colorado state court system. His desire to find ways to make courts more efficient and accessible brought him to IAALS. Zolle has also taught courses on constitutional law and criminal justice reform as an adjunct with the University of Denver Department of Political Science.

Zolle is a member of Order of the Coif at the University of Michigan Law School, where he was named 2014 Pro Bono Student of the Year and won the 2013 Michigan Law Review Student Essay Contest. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009, and he also holds a master’s degree in critical and comparative musicology from the University of Virginia.
