The Glickman Lecture

Each year Plan II is fortunate to be able to invite prominent speakers to campus thanks to a generous gift from Julius Glickman ’62 and Suzan Glickman.  

A Plan II major, Julius Glickman received his BA from the University of Texas at Austin in 1962 and his LLB from the University of Texas School of Law in 1966. As a UT student, Mr. Glickman was student body president ('62-'63), outstanding student and an active member of the Friars, Silver Spurs and the Tejas Club.
