Professor Laurent Sacharoff received his B.A. from Princeton University and graduated from Columbia Law School, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar. After law school he clerked for the Honorable John S. Martin, Jr. in the Southern District of New York and then joined the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell, where he was the pro-bono fellow handling prison litigation. In this job, he represented scores of prisoners and won several significant money damages awards for prison beatings, failure to protect, and other constitutional violations. He also served as a litigation associate at Sullivan & Cromwell handling complex commercial litigation.
Professor Sacharoff also worked as a public defender at the Legal Aid Society in Brooklyn, New York, where he tried numerous cases to juries, argued suppression motions, and arranged plea deals. Before coming to the University of Arkansas School of Law, he taught at Temple Law School as an Abraham L. Freedman fellow.
Prof. Sacharoff teaches criminal law, international criminal law, capital punishment, and prisoners' rights. His research interests include criminal law and procedure, as well as constitutional law.
