22nd annual Briloff Lecture at Binghamton University


     Judge Stanley Sporkin will be the speaker for the 22nd annual Abraham J. Briloff Lecture Series on Accountability and Society at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 12 in the Chamber Hall of the Anderson Center at Binghamton University. The lecture is free and open to the public.

     Sporkin, a retired federal district court judge and director of enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission, will deliver a talk titled, “On the Road to Financial Shangri-La – What Happened.”

     Sporkin served twenty years with the Securities and Exchange Commission, five years as General Counsel to the CIA, and was appointed by President Ronald Reagan as U.S. Judge for the District of Columbia. Sporkin’s current practice, the Gavin Consulting Group, consists of corporate counseling, mediation and arbitration services, and crisis management consultations.

     The annual lecture series is named in honor of Professor Briloff, the Emanuel Saxe Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Bernard Baruch College and Presidential Professor of Accounting and Ethics at Binghamton University. Over his long and distinguished career Professor Briloff has been recognized as the ethical conscience for business and the accounting profession. Through his writings and lectures, Briloff emphasized the need for ethical business practices and influenced others to make the highest ethical standards the basis of their work.

     The Briloff lecture series brings members of the accounting profession, businesses, and campus communities together to contemplate topics of business ethics.  A reception will follow in the Anderson Center Reception Room.

     The lecture series is sponsored by the Binghamton University School of Management.
