Todd Haugh

Visiting Assistant Professor of Law

Prior to joining the law school's faculty in 2012, Professor Haugh spent a year as a Supreme Court Fellow at the Supreme Court of the United States. Professor Haugh was one of only four fellows chosen from national and international applicants to study the administrative machinery of the federal judiciary. During his fellowship year, he worked in the General Counsel's Office of the U.S. Sentencing Commission as part of a professional team conducting policy, legal and social science research that resulted in amendments to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. In addition, the fellowship allowed him access to the inner workings of the Supreme Court, where he participated in meetings of the Judicial Conference, was briefed at the United Nations as a guest of the International Judicial Relations Committee, and attended dozens of Supreme Court arguments.

Professor Haugh previously spent two years teaching at DePaul University College of Law. At DePaul, Professor Haugh taught beginning and upper-level legal writing courses and developed a course on federal criminal law drafting techniques. Before that, he was an associate at Winston & Strawn LLP, where he practiced white collar criminal defense and completed more than 600 hours of bro bono service, working on behalf of Illinois C-Class inmates and nonprofit organizations. During 2006–07, he clerked for the Honorable Suzanne B. Conlon, senior judge for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Following law school, Professor Haugh spent four years as an associate at the law firm of Stetler, Duffy & Rotert Ltd., where he practiced white collar criminal defense. During his years in practice, Professor Haugh has represented all levels of individuals accused of committing white collar crime, from politicians to CEOs to secretaries.

Professor Haugh graduated with honors from Brown University in 1999 with a B.A. in political science. In 2002, he earned a J.D. degree cum laude from the University of Illinois College of Law.

Professor Haugh's research interests include white collar crime, sentencing and international criminal law.
