We previously have extolled the virtues of the IRS Chief Counsel's Professor-in-Residence Program, recently reinstituted by Donald Korb with the selection of Calvin Johnson (Texas) to serve in the post from January 1, 2007 - June 30, 2007. Applications for those who would like to serve in the position from September 1, 2007 - June 30, 2008 are due this Thursday, March 1.
From the ABA Tax Section:
The Professor in Residence Program at the IRS Office of Chief Counsel is designed to achieve greater understanding of the academic and governmental perspectives on the development of tax law and policy. The program provides one law school professor per year the opportunity to apply his or her scholarly experience, research and writing in tax law to the full range of technical legal work and litigation handled by the Office of Chief Counsel by serving full-time on the Chief Counsel’s immediate staff for a full academic year. This prestigious position will enhance the professor’s stature within the tax bar and provide him or her the ability to serve the public and the law by meaningfully contributing to the development of tax policy, as well as to attain a comprehensive understanding of the Office of Chief Counsel.
