From Mike Floyd of the Cumberland School of Law, Professor of Law and Director of International Studies:
"Loreta Raulinaityte is a 1998 JD graduate of the Cumberland School of Law. A native of Lithuania, her attendance at Cumberland grew out of the friendship she developed with Cumberland alumnus Bill Satterfield and his wife, Carolyn. Loreta currently lives in Brussels and serves as the single Permanent Member of the COSAC Secretariat of the European Union in Brussels. COSAC represents the interests of the European member states’ parliaments to the European Union. It meets twice yearly, in the capital of the country holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Loreta is immensely proud of her Cumberland degree, and she regularly visits Cumberland’s summer study-abroad program in Cambridge to share her perspective on the European Union. The walls of Loreta’s office in Brussels display only two things: a map of Europe, which was a gift from a former President of the European Parliament, and her Cumberland diploma."
The world is better because of Loreta Raulinaityte and the Cumberland School of Law.
