LSU Law held commencement exercises for the Class of 2024 on Saturday, May 18, in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on the LSU campus. The Hon. Dana Douglas, who was sworn in as first Black female judge to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit on March 10, 2023, delivered the commencement address.

It marked the first commencement at LSU Law for Dean Alena Allen, who began serving in her role on July 1, 2023. Allen provided opening remarks to the LSU Law Class of 2024 and presented the annual faculty and staff awards, which were voted on by the LSU Law student body.

Professor Nikolaos Davrados, who joined the faculty at the start of the 2023-24 year, was recognized as the Professor of the Year. He also participated in the ceremonial hooding of the graduates, along with Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Jake Henry.

Associate Director of Career Services Melanie Anderson received the Staff Member of the Year award, and Professor Emeritus Alain Levasseur was recognized as the Adjunct Professor of the Year. Allen also acknowledged and thanked Professor P. Raymond Lamonica (’70), who is retiring after a 50-year career at LSU Law and LSU.

Honorary guests included LSU Board of Supervisors Member Rémy Starns and LSU Executive Vice President and Provost Roy Haggerty. LSU Law Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs Andrea Carroll read the roll of graduates.

2023-24 Student Bar Association Executive President Kathleen Peppo delivered the student welcome and 2023-24 3L Class President Richard Robertson III provided the class farewell. Class of 2024 graduate D’Andrea Carter performed the Star-Spangled Banner to open the ceremony.
