Rochelle E. Lento
Law School's Law Quadrangle Notes

Rochelle Lento is the executive director of the Program in Legal Assistance for Urban Communities, whose goal is to enable community-based organizations to surmount certain legal obstacles by receiving necessary legal and technical assistance to rebuild their neighborhoods' economic-development and social bases.

Lento, an attorney, long-time Detroit resident, and former aide to Detroit City Council President Mary Ann Mahaffey, was hired in 1990 as the program's first director. Lento also brings to the program a history of community organizing, having worked with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

In 2005, Lento left Michigan Law to return to private practice.
