Christian Law Student Association Speaker Series

Uptown Campus
Weinmann Hall

The Christian Law Student Association is proud to announce the Christian Legal Spring Speaker Series. We are hosting Ms. Denise Harle. Harle earned bachelor’s degrees, summa cum laude, in psychology and interdisciplinary social science from Florida State University, a master’s degree in political science from Stanford University, and a Juris Doctor from Duke University School of Law. At Duke, she served as the executive editor of Law & Contemporary Problems. Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed Harle to the Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council in 2021 to support churches and nonprofits as they care for vulnerable members of society. A member of the state bars of California, Florida, and Georgia, she is admitted to multiple federal district and appellate courts, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court.
Denise Harle serves as senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, where she is the director of the Center for Life and leads her team’s litigation and advocacy efforts to defend pro-life laws around the nation. She also networks with pro-life allies, speaks publicly on behalf of ADF, and works to defend the First Amendment freedoms of pro-life medical professionals and pregnancy resource centers. Since joining ADF, Harle took the primary role in drafting the briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court in NIFLA v. Becerra, resulting in a free-speech victory for pro-life pregnancy centers. 
Ms. Harle will be discussing, among other things, what it is like to be a Christian lawyer and Christian ethics, philosophy, theology, and her story.
