Georgia Law’s 113th Sibley Lecture will be delivered this Thursday, January 28th. Harvard Law School’s David B. Wilkins will present “The Accountants Are Coming ― Again!: The Rise and Transformation of the Big 4 Accountancy Firms and What it Means for the Global Market for Legal Services.” Wilkins is widely known as an expert on globalization and the legal profession. For more information about this speaker and his forthcoming visit to our law school check out the press release.
In anticipation of this event it seems only fitting that we share our archive of past Sibley Lectures and reflect briefly on the history of the series:
In 1964, the trustees of the Loridans Foundation established the John A. Sibley Lecture Series. These talks honor the leadership and public spirit of this 1911 Georgia Law graduate. It is hard to place the contributions of John Adams Sibley in any given decade, for his service to the law school and to the state of Georgia extended over a period of almost 80 years.
