Before joining the faculty at John Marshall, William Carroll had varied careers, among them university professor of theology and psychology and religion, clinical psychologist, trial attorney as a federal defender, and corporate counsel for a cable television company and a supermarket chain. His interest in law developed while he was a post-doctoral visiting scholar at the University of Chicago. He continues his involvement with interdisciplinary matters, serving as counsel to the Illinois Psychological Association Ethics Committee, consultant on legal and policy issues to the American Psychological Association, Reporter for the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Mental Health Standards, and co-author of a controversial study on human sexuality commissioned by the Catholic Theological Society of America. He is frequently consulted on high-profile cases involving the mental responsibility of the accused.

Professor Carroll joined the faculty in 1975. He teaches Conflict of Laws, Criminal Law, and Philosophy of Law.
