This is quite a coup for UC-Irvine to land one of the tax academy's biggest rising stars, and quite an opportunity for Sarah to be the founding Tax Prof at the country's most exciting new law school.
Professor Lawsky joined the GW Law School faculty in 2007. She teaches and writes in the area of taxation. Before entering academia, she worked at the law firm of Hogan & Hartson LLP, where she provided tax advice to corporations, LLCs, tax-exempt organizations, and high-net-worth individuals.
She earned a B.A. in philosophy with an allied field of math from the University of Chicago, a J.D. from Yale University, and an LL.M. in tax law from New York University. While in law school, Professor Lawsky was executive editor of the Yale Law Journal. Prior to attending law school, she helped veterans with psychiatric disabilities obtain social security and veterans benefits.
