Curriculum Vitae

Bio:

Hannah Haksgaard (nee Alsgaard) was born in Kentucky, but grew up and attended K-12 in Yankton, South Dakota. She returned to Kentucky for college before attending law school in California. During law school, Professor Haksgaard was an editor on the Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice and was a graduate student instructor in the Berkeley Legal Studies department for two undergraduate classes: Government & the Family and Reproduction, Sex & the Law. Following law school, Professor Haksgaard clerked for the Honorable Roberto Lange of the District of South Dakota and the Honorable Kermit Bye of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Professor Haksgaard joined the USD Law faculty in 2016. She is currently an assistant professor of law.
