Amy Perez works closely with students to navigate the unique challenges of law school and to help them find greater success, satisfaction, and happiness during law school and beyond.    

Perez received her Juris Doctor in 2000 and her Bachelor of Science in 1997, both with honors, from the University of Florida.  Prior to joining Miami Law’s Student Development team in 2012, she spent two years as an Associate Director in the Career Development Office. From 2010 to 2015 she also served as Miami Law’s Director of Judicial Clerkships and continues to serve as a member of Miami Law’s Judicial Clerkship Committee. 

Perez has held numerous leadership positions within the National Association for Legal Professionals (NALP), including Chair of the Newer Professional’s Section and Chair of the Judicial Clerkship Section.

Upon graduation from law school, Perez practiced labor and employment law in Miami representing a broad range of individuals, corporations, and public sector entities. Her interest in professional and student development was first sparked when she worked as a Peer Pre-Law Advisor at the University of Florida.  Today, she draws upon the wide variety of her educational and professional experiences to help guide and counsel Miami Law’s students.
