She earned her B.A. in Economics from Spelman College, her M.B.A. from Columbia University, and her J.D. from Rutgers School of Law – Camden. She joined the FAMU College of Law faculty in 2014 after completing the William H.

While in practice, Professor Harvey was a public defender in Philadelphia, PA and a private real estate investor. Her research interests are at the intersection of business, property, and finance. Professor Harvey focuses her scholarship on issues affecting closely-held and family-owned firms, and on economic crimes in small business settings.

Parts of the project have appeared in the Missouri Law Review (2014), the Cornell Real Estate Review (2014), and the Missouri Law Review (2015).
