Rebecca Haw studies how courts and agencies gather, understand, and incorporate social scientific arguments into decision-making, using antitrust law as a laboratory. Her work traces the origin and evolution of microeconomic arguments in litigation and suggests procedural reforms that reduce the law's distorting effect on academic knowledge. Professor Haw was a Climenko Fellow at Harvard Law School from 2009-11. Before accepting her Climenko Fellowship, she clerked for Judge Richard A. Posner on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in 2008-09. Professor Haw earned her undergraduate degree in English at Yale, an M.Phil. in American literature at Cambridge University and her J.D. at Harvard Law School, where she was a research assistant to Professors Bruce Hay (2007) and Elizabeth Warren (2006) and served as articles editor of the Harvard Law Review. Her article "Amicus Briefs and the Sherman Act: Why Antitrust Needs a New Deal," was published earlier this year in the Texas Law Review. "Adversarial Economics in Antitrust Litigation: Losing Academic Consensus in the Battle of the Experts," is forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review. Professor Haw teaches Antitrust Law and a seminar, Expertise in Law.
