Following graduation from the Georgetown University Law Center, Professor McGregor engaged in private practice in Boulder, Colorado, focusing primarily in the area of probate law and estate planning.

She developed and ran an academic support program for fourteen years. For twenty-three years Professor McGregor served as the assistant director of the legal writing program and also developed the first writing course for LL.M. students and the summer legal process course for J.D. and M.J. students. Professor McGregor is the only legal writing professor to receive the student bar association's Best New Teacher’s Award. She has received the Black Law Student Association’s John Morton-Finney/Brenda Elise Bowles Award twice, the Teaching Excellence Recognition Award twice, and the Indiana University Trustee’s Teaching Award.

In 2013 Professor McGregor was named the Director of the law school’s new Master of Jurisprudence Program, which is designed for those students whose career focus is in a discipline other than law but who would benefit by learning about the law. The first class matriculated in the summer of 2014. Professor McGregor has been an active participant in the national Legal Writing Institute (LWI), presenting at both national and regional conferences over the last twenty-seven years.
