The Bucket List: 23 Law Profs to Take Before You Die, The National Jurist (March 2011):
What if you could bring together the most intereesting law profs from around the nation? Not necessarily the professors who would teach you the best. But the faculty that would entertain, inspire and intrique you. ... [T]hese are the profs you have to take before you die. ...
Tax Law. Sergio Pareja (New Mexico)
Sergio Parja works his students hard, occasional pop quizzes and a mid-term and a final, but he works as hard as the students do, say his peers. The students love him for it. And part of what they enjoy is that he occasonally breaks into song in class.
Pareja joined the UNM law faculty in 2005 after nearly nine years in private practice in Colorado and Indiana. Most recently, Pareja was a partner in the tax department at a large Denver law firm. While in private practice, Pareja specialized in Federal individual and corporate income tax planning, state and local tax matters, and estate and gift tax planning.
