LSNJ Board of Trustees


Ramona E. Romero, Esq.

Princeton University

Ramona Romero has been vice president and general counsel at Princeton University since 2014 and was previously general counsel of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Prior to joining the Obama Administration, she worked at DuPont in a variety of legal roles, after a career as a litigator in Washington, D.C. She holds a B.A. from Barnard College and a J.D. from Harvard Law School

“If you look at the arc of my career,” she says, “there has always been a component of community and legal services. Providing pro bono services to people directly has been an important part of my work in private practice, while also focusing on more macro social services issues.”

Romero currently serves on the board of trustees of the McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton. Prior volunteer service includes the boards of The Justice at Stake Campaign, the American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula, and the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, as well as the advisory committee of The O’Connor Judicial Selection Initiative at the University of Denver.  She is a former national president of the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA), where she founded the Latina Commission and the highly successful Hispanic Appointments Project.
