I had the pleasure of being the first speaker at Troy University’s Gibson Vance Distinguished Lecturer Series last month. The series aims to provide students interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession the opportunity to hear from what was said to be some of the field’s foremost figures. With my speech, “My Lifetime in the Court Room,” My goal was to provide students with some insight into a career in the legal profession and the impact lawyers can have on the lives of individuals and communities. Hopefully, I was able to accomplish my goal.

The series, a part of the College of Arts and Sciences at Troy University, was endowed thanks to a donation from our own Gibson Vance, an alumnus of the University and currently a member of the school’s Board of Directors. “I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to the University that provided me a great education and a wonderful college experience,” Gibson told Troy Today.

The lecture series is sure to be an asset to the university well into the future. “We are grateful to Gibson Vance for his vision and leadership as a Trustee and for his generosity in establishing this important lecture series,” Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr. said in Troy Today. “These lectures will be of great benefit to our students preparing for a career in law, and Jere Beasley, truly one the nation’s best lawyers, is the perfect lecturer to start the series.” I sincerely appreciate Dr. Hawkins remarks and it was a definite honor to be chosen as the first speaker for the series.

Impressed with the Beasley Allen staff

I am very impressed with the Beasley Allen staff. They were very courteous and patiently explained the aspects of my claim in a way I could understand. If I ever have any need of an attorney in the future I will turn to Beasley Allen.
