LSU Law Center’s Pamela Hancock received the 2016 LSU Foundation Staff Outstanding Service Award during a ceremony held Dec. 12 at the Lod Cook Alumni Center. This award recognizes the superior work performance and outstanding contributions of full-time, non-academic staff employees of the LSU campus.
Hancock is the Coordinator of Administrative Activities for LSU Law and oversees critical Law Center programs, including the Trial Advocacy Program, Apprenticeship Week and LSU Law’s flood relief efforts during the fall 2016 semester.
“Pam is an integral part of the of the office of the dean of the LSU Law Center. She consistently and proactively goes far beyond expectations,” LSU Law Dean Tom Galligan said in his recommendation for Hancock’s award.
This year, Hancock led the effort to revamp the Trial Advocacy Program to meet new standards that will go into effect in 2017. The program, “lauded as the most successful in years,” combined video recording of student arguments during trial simulation and one-on-one instruction with students and legal experts — attorneys, judges and law professors from across Louisiana.
“Pam’s dedication to the mission of the law center, her impeccable work and her gracious demeanor make her an incredible asset to LSU,” Galligan said.
Congratulations, Pam, from the LSU Law Center!
