Allison Matulli is a former attorney and educator, now Founder of The Little Lawyers, an organization promoting legal awareness for children.

She continues to use her voice to speak up for children’s rights, whether as a keynote speaker on Tuesday Times (a round table sponsored by The New York Times) or as a contributing writer for journals such as Education Week. Allison holds a B.A. in Economics from St. Joseph’s University, a Master’s in Education from Endicott College, and a J.D. from Howard University School of Law.
