About 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. 

Julius Glickman, a Plan II major, 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.
