Alé DaltonAlé Dalton, a 2016 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, has been appointed to the Hispanic National Bar Association‘s 2016–2017 Latina Commission.

Dalton, who works on the health care team for the Nashville firm Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, is one of only nine appointeees nationwide to the Latina Commission. The commission focuses its efforts on studying and remedying barriers to entry and advancement faced by Latina lawyers. According to a press release by Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, “Latinas represent less than 2 percent of the total US lawyer population and are the most statistically underrepresented attorney group in nearly every legal sector, particularly in private practice.”

Before earning a JD at UT Law, Dalton earned a BS from Lipscomb University, graduating magna cum laude.
