Scott Harrington has been named director of the LSU Law Center of Continuing Professional Development (CCPD), after serving as interim director since July upon the retirement of long-serving director Glynn Pellegrin.
Harrington’s service at the CCPD dates to 1998, when he joined the team as a student worker. Before taking over as interim director this summer, he served as associate director for 11 years, and prior to that held roles as coordinator and assistant coordinator. He was appointed CCPD director on Sept. 16.
“We are extremely excited about Scott assuming this role. He is intelligent, experienced and innovative,” says LSU Law Dean Tom Galligan. “We have every confidence that he will carry on the success of the office and high standards set by Glynn Pellegrin over his 25 years at the LSU Law Center. A huge part of that confidence is based on the fact that Scott was part of that very successful CCPD team.”
The CCPD extends the knowledge and resources of the LSU Law Center to the Louisiana Bar. Offering some 20 professional development seminars each year at various locations throughout Louisiana, it is the premier provider of continuing legal education in the state.
Harrington earned a JD from Southern University Law Center in 2015, graduating first in his class. He holds a BS in information systems and decision sciences/business administration from LSU.
“I deeply appreciate Dean Galligan’s confidence in my ability to maintain the high standard set for LSU CLE—and for his commitment to the CCPD and our mission of service to our alumni and the Louisiana Bar,” Harrington says. “I believe we’ve assembled a uniquely qualified team capable of building upon the superlative legacy we’ve inherited. I’m excited about the future of legal education and the unique role we can play in that future.”
