Lorraine Lalli ’01

Then & NowRWU Law’s Assistant Dean of Students, Lorraine Lalli, is a magna cum laude graduate of Spelman College, where she majored in Philosophy and earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa. She received her Juris Doctor degree, also magna cum laude, from Roger Williams University School of Law in 2001. As a law student, she won numerous awards for academic excellence, and served as President of the Multicultural Law Students Association and the extramural Trial Team.

Lorraine is admitted to the state bars of Massachusetts and Rhode Island and practiced with Brown Rudnick, LLP in Boston before returning to her alma mater as the first Director of Diversity & Outreach. In this important capacity, she energized existing programs designed to improve the academic experience, and thus academic success, of students from diverse backgrounds.

Lorraine previously served as RWU Law’s Associate Director of Academic Support, helping to deliver academic support to Roger Williams students on an as-needed basis. An especially important contribution was her work developing and delivering "Jumpstart," an innovative summer program for non-traditional students. In addition, she planned and presented at a national conference of Academic Support Directors held at Roger Williams University and sponsored by the Law School Admission Council, and served on the School of Law Admissions Committee.
