Stanford E. Lacy American Inn of Court holds banquet & business meeting in Columbia
COLUMBIA, S.C – Collins & Lacy launched the Stanford E. Lacy American Inn of Court on Tuesday evening in Columbia. The law firm’s founding partner Stan Lacy has taught workers’ compensation law at the University of South Carolina School of Law since 1981.
An inn of court is an association of lawyers, judges or commissioners, and legal professionals who work to improve the practice of law in its jurisdiction. This is South Carolina’s first inn devoted to the state’s workers’ compensation system.
“Establishing the Stanford E. Lacy American Inn of Court is our firm’s way of recognizing Stan’s contributions to our legal profession for more than forty years,” said Joel Collins, who founded the firm with Lacy in 1984. “Stan is a stalwart of Palmetto State jurisprudence and this is an appropriate recognition of his impact.”
Collins & Lacy shareholder Ellen Adams is the inaugural president of the new inn of court. She conducted a business meeting during this week’s event at The Palmetto Club.
About American Inns of Court
Across the United States, there are hundreds of inns and the membership of each is divided into “pupillage teams.” The teams combine younger, less-experienced associates and students with veteran attorneys and judges or commissioners. Through this mentorship and learning, attorneys become better advocates and counselors. More about American Inns of Court.
