Meet the Pre-Law Advisor/Paralegal Program Director
As an attorney, judge, and professor, Annamaria Maciocia provides her
students with an insider's sense of the current framework of legal
practice. Professor Maciocia joined the Marist faculty as professional
lecturer in 1995. In 2011, she became the Director of the College's
Paralegal Program, which recently celebrated its 25th year of recognition

Throughout her time at the College, Professor Maciocia has shown
boundless dedication to Pre-Law and Paralegal students. In recognition
of her great success as an educator and mentor, she received the 2014
Board of Trustees' Faculty Award for Distinguished Teaching.
