Alumni Highlight

Ally LaTourelleAlly LaTourelle (’07) received her degree from Pace Law School in May 2007. While at Pace, Ally was an involved student, to say the least. She participated and placed in the ABA National Negotiation Competition, the ABA Regional Negotiation Competition, was on Dean’s List, chaired the Moot Court Board, and participated in the Willem C.
