LexisNexis Publishes First Book in Graduate Tax Series

Book Cover

On behalf of LexisNexis and the Graduate Tax Series Board of Editors (Ellen Aprill (Loyola-L.A.), Elliott Manning (Miami), Philip Postlewaite (Northwestern) & David Richardson (Florida)), I am delighted to announced the publication of the first book in our Series, Civil Tax Procedure, by David Richardson (Florida), Jerome Borison (Denver), and Steve Johnson (UNLV).

The Graduate Tax Series is the first series of course materials designed for use in tax LL.M. programs. Like all books in the Series, Civil Tax Procedure was designed from the ground-up with the needs of graduate tax faculty and students in mind:

  • More focus on Internal Revenue Code and regulations, less on case law
  • Analysis of complex, practice-oriented problems of increasing sophistication
  • Teacher’s manual with solutions to problems and other guidance
  • Web site with real-time digital supplementation for faculty (PowerPoint slides and discussion forum with authors) and students (full text of all cases and rulings)
  • On-line access to the comprehensive and current Code and regulations, designed to complement the book

Other books in the Series will be available for adoption in 2006 and 2007.  The next two books in the Series will be published soon:

  • Federal Tax Accounting, by Michael Lang (Chapman), Elliot Manning (Miami) & Steven Willis (Florida)
  • Employee Benefits Law, by Kathryn Kennedy (John Marshall) & Paul Shultz (Director, Employee Plans Rulings & Agreement, IRS)

Other forthcoming books in the Series are:

  • Bankruptcy Taxation, by Frances Hill (Miami) & William Lyons (Nebraska)
  • Federal Taxation of Property Transactions, by Elliott Manning (Miami) & David Cameron (Northwestern)
  • Partnership Taxation, by Paul Carman (Chapman & Cutler), Charles Fassler (Greenebaum, Doll & McDonald), Richard Lipton (Baker & McKenzie) & Walter Schwidetzky (Baltimore)
  • Tax Practice Ethics, by Linda Galler (Hofstra) & Michael Lang (Chapman)
  • U.S. International Taxation, by Philip Postlewaite (Northwestern), Samuel Donaldson (Washington) & Allison Christians (Wisconsin)
