Academic Support Spotlight
It's about time I announce that . . .
In August, Lorraine Newton Lalli, Esq., joined the Academic Support group at Roger Williams University School of Law. In her new position, as Director of Diversity and Outreach and Associate Director of the Academic Support Program, Lorraine is responsible for diversity outreach and programming, and development and delivery of academic support activities and programs.
Lorraine received her B.A., magna cum laude, from Spelman College and her J.D., magna cum laude, from Roger Williams University School of Law — where she was a member of the School of Law Honors Program and the salutatorian of her law school graduating class.
Lorraine, a Providence, Rhode Island native, is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Providence Alumnae Chapter.
During her three years at Roger Williams, Lorraine served as president of the Multi-Cultural Law Students Association. She served as a consultant to the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society, and she went on to practice banking and finance law in the Boston office of Brown Rudnick Berlack Israel, LLP.
Lorraine complements our fine group of talented professionals in the Academic Support Program — Associate Director of Academic Support, Jon Strauss, and Tracy Sartrys, our Administrative Assistant. (djt)
