Monica Haymond

Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law


Monica Haymond is a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School. Her scholarship focuses on civil procedure and remedies. In particular, she writes about how the rules of federal litigation shape judicial discretion and party participation. Among her current projects is Intervention and Universal Remedies, which analyzes the breadth of judicial discretion afforded by rules governing third-party intervention in federal suits seeking large-scale negative remedies, like the nationwide injunction. 

Monica previously practiced as a managing associate in Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP’s Supreme Court & Appellate Practice. She clerked for Judge Stephanos Bibas of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and Judge Adalberto Jordan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. During her clerkship, she co-taught a seminar on habeas corpus at the University of Miami School of Law with Judge Jordan. 

Monica graduated Order of the Coif from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she served as an editor of the Virginia Law Review and the Virginia Journal of Law & Politics. She received the Roger and Madeleine Traynor Prize for her student note, Who’s In and Who’s Out: Congressional Power Over Individuals Under the Indian Commerce Clause, published in the Virginia Law Review. She was also a fellow in the Law & Public Service Program, a participant in the school’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, and a semi-finalist in the law school’s moot court competition. 

She received her B.A. from the University of California, Davis. Before law school, she worked for the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation’s Appeals Board.
