Tax Policy Seminar (Sanchirico/Shuldiner/Knoll)
W 4:30PM - 6:30PM
Gittis Hall 213
The seminar will focus on original papers by some of the leading scholars in tax policy and public finance, on some of the most salient tax policy issues of the day. The professors and students will be joined by each paper's author for an extensive and, we hope, lively discussion of the paper. Students will read each paper in advance and write reaction papers to be turned in prior to the author's presentation. The seminar is intended to give students the opportunity to participate in serious work on tax policy through the equivalent of an advanced graduate-level seminar.
Learning outcomes: Demonstrate a core understanding of tax law and policy; Perform legal analysis in the context of tax law and policy; Communicate effectively on topics related to tax law and policy; Demonstrate an understanding of how tax law and policy affect other areas of law and business.
