.- The National Lawyers Association, a group dedicated to providing support to pro-life attorneys across the U.S., will hold their annual conference in Denver this summer.

“We are pleased to be offering expert presentations on topics ranging from the historical origins of our 18th century federal Constitution to 21st century medical and legal issues involving human embryos,” said organization president John Farnan.

The conference, held from June 24-25 at the Holland and Hart law firm in downtown Denver, is open to association members and non-members, and will feature prominent speakers on a wide range of topics related to today's field.

The presentations “will touch on pressing issues in our Republic, while allowing lawyers to learn how to be more persuasive in the courtroom,” Farnan said.

Christopher Ferrara, president of American Catholic Lawyers Association, will give the keynote speech on legal positivism and the future of the pro-life movement.

Professor Patrick T. Gillen, a teacher of constitutional law and American legal history at Ave Maria School of Law, will discuss the origins of the Federal Constitution.

Trial attorney from Illinois Rita L. Gitchell will present theories on the the legal status of human embryos, and Kevin R. Boully, Ph.D. – a litigation and jury consultant – will address how jurors and judges make their decisions. He will also touch on how attorneys can be better advocates and more persuasive in the courtroom.

Deacon John Volk, MD, a family practice physician in Colorado, will present the medical aspects and procedures involving human embryos.

Attendees can register online at www.nla.org.
