This essay reflects on the long and continuing significance of fiduciary duties in the law. Illustrating this significance are efforts to formalize fiduciary obligations over time and the appearance of fiduciary principles in additional areas of the law. The observations in this essay accompanied the Meador Lectures on Fiduciaries published in the Alabama Law Review. The lectures originally were presented at The University of Alabama School of Law by Professor Deborah DeMott of Duke School of Law, Professor Jill Fisch of Fordham Law School, and Professor John Langbein of Yale Law School.
