Tax Prof Carolyn Jones to Step Down as Iowa Dean

Jones Tax Prof Carolyn Jones is stepping down as Iowa's Dean after five years on the job.  From the Iowa press release:

Carolyn Jones, the first woman to serve as dean of the University of Iowa College of Law, has announced she will step down from leading her alma mater in summer 2010 and return to the faculty. Jones has been dean since July 2004, when she succeeded William Hines. ...

Jones' legal specialty is tax law, and her research specialty is the legal history of American taxation. She has contributed to five books on tax law and is the author of numerous scholarly articles on the issue. She has also made numerous presentations about tax issues, estate law and Social Security.
