Lucchino graduated from Princeton University in 1967, and later attended Yale Law School.

At Princeton, Lucchino, an athlete in his own right, was on the basketball team with Bill Bradley who later became an NBA star and United States Senator from New Jersey. After law school, Lucchino practiced law with the Washington, D. C. law firm of Williams & Connelly. The founder, famed litigator, Edward Bennett Williams, had ownership interest in both the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Orioles. Lucchino's law practice at Williams & Connolly included a substantial amount of work for those two sports teams. Through that work he ultimately became President/CEO of the Baltimore Orioles and later, the San Diego Padres. Under his watch, both teams built new stadiums Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Petco Park.
