Tuesday, April 27, 2004

Inspired by Brian Leiter's post about where federal district court and court of appeals judges went to law school, TaxProf Blog checked out the educational background of the 17 Tax Court Judges from the Tax Court web site.

Interestingly, the 17 judges earned their JD degrees from 17 different law schools:
* UC-Berkeley
* Chicago
* Colorado
* DePaul
* Duke
* Emory
* George Washington
* Georgetown
* Houston
* Illinois
* Kentucky
* Maryland
* Montana
* Pennsylvania
* South Dakota
* USC
* Virginia

9 of the 17 judges earned tax LL.M. degrees:
* NYU (6)
* Georgetown (2)
* Boston University (1)

11 of the judges were appointed by Republican Presidents, 6 by Democratic Presidents.
