Associate Professor Denise Mowder specializes in trial practice, investigations and victim advocacy. As an attorney with more than 10 years experience as a prosecutor in Oregon, Mowder has prosecuted many cases involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault.

She earned her Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from Washington State University, a J.D. from Willamette College of Law at Willamette University in Salem Oregon and a B.S. at University of Colorado, Denver.

Mowder’s currently teaching Criminal Justice Ethics and Victimology courses at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Her research area focuses on the impact of current immigration law and the undocumented battered Latina woman -- particularly, whether the fear of deportation outweighs the fear of being battered. Her current research involves the wrongful conviction of the factually innocent.
