The Honorable Kristen L. Mix, United States Magistrate Judge, District of Colorado

Kristen L. Mix was appointed to the federal bench in 2007. In addition to serving as a full-time Magistrate Judge on the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, she has served on the Judicial Conference of the United States Committee on the Administration of the Magistrate Judge System, the Executive Committee of the Federal Magistrate Judges’ Association, the District of Colorado’s Local Rules Committee, and as a member and Chair of the Colorado Judicial Coordinating Council. Judge Mix also serves on the Sedona Conference’s Judicial Advisory Board and is the judicial co-founder of the Colorado Intellectual Property American Inn of Court. In 2014, Judge Mix created a public sector internship program for local diverse law students which has resulted in placement of more than one hundred second and third-year law students in public-sector legal internships. Judge Mix’s efforts to better serve pro se litigants led to the opening of a federal pro se clinic in the District of Colorado’s Alfred A. Arraj United States Courthouse in June of 2018. She is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, and a frequent writer and speaker on the law.
