Evan Haglund graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California with a bachelor’s degree in history in 1984. He subsequently earned a Master in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in 1986, and a law degree from USC in 1990. He then clerked for Judge O’Scannlain, of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Evan is not an attorney in his current position for Robbins & Curtin.
In his work for the firm, Evan often travels throughout Arizona and beyond. Destinations have included New Mexico, Minnesota, and even to a refugee camp in Uganda, Africa, tracking down witnesses and arranging for trial testimony.

Evan’s trip to Africa made a profound mark on his world view, and he is now active in an African development organization, Women’s Initiatives that Strengthen and Empower (“WISE”), which focuses on providing educational opportunities to the most vulnerable children (particularly girls) in Zambia, as well as economic opportunities for displaced women and mothers. WISE currently provides high school and college scholarships for approximately 100 students from remote villages in rural Zambia, and supports a Women’s Center in Kaoma, Zambia, providing training and other services for displaced women.
