Alan Sears, president, CEO and general counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom, will hold a public forum, Update on God’s Fingerprints in the Courts, Wednesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. in Lightsey Chapel Auditorium on the campus of Charleston Southern University.
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building legal ministry that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith. Sears heads up the organization’s strategy, training, funding and litigation efforts.
ADF was created in 1994 to coordinate legal defense on cases involving religious freedom, provide training for Christian attorneys and law students, provide funding to sustain quality, long-term legal defense and provide legal assistance at no charge.
“We are providing access to the CEO of one of the two or three legal organizations in the United States who are central to engaging in the court system – all the way to the Supreme Court – with the major issues that will impact the faith community in the months and years ahead,” said Doug Hunter, executive director of CSU’s Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership.
Sears earned his juris doctor from Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and has served in numerous governmental positions including working for the Department of Justice under Attorneys General William French Smith and Edwin Meese III and serving as Assistant U.S. Attorney and Chief of the Criminal Section.
He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and has studied professionally at Stanford University, Harvard Law School, Harvard Business School and Pepperdine University.
In addition to practicing law for three decades he appears in the national media and has authored books with Craig Osten such as The Homosexual Agenda: Exposing the Principal Threat to Religious Freedom Today and The ACLU vs. America and is the author of two novels: In Justice and Trial and Error.
The event is free, but a suggested donation of $10 will be accepted at the door.
