Nancy R. Gallo, J.D., is the Director of the Center for Lifelong Learning. She co-founded the Center in January 2015 with the Senior Services Division of Sussex County, New Jersey, to bring topics to the Center that promote invigorating lifelong learning for Sussex County seniors at the College's convenient Newton location.

Professor Gallo teaches within the Legal Studies and Business Programs at SCCC and has practiced law in both Florida and New Jersey. Prior to law school, she was a newspaper features editor and award-winning reporter. While an SCCC faculty member, Prof. Gallo received a National Endowment for the Humanities funded grant for the study, “Paul Robeson, 20th Century Humanist and Lawyer.”   

Professor Gallo is the author of the textbooks, Introduction to Family Law published as part of the West Legal Studies Series, and Elder Law published by Delmar/Thompson Publishing.    

Additionally, Prof. Gallo was the writer and producer of Legal Briefs, a radio show. She has a primary research interest in elder law and the issues of aging in the 21st century life. Prof. Gallo feels very lucky to live with her family in a restored 160-year-old farmhouse on a small family farm shared with multiple four-legged family members.
