Tax Panels at Today's SEALS Annual Meeting


Tax panels at today's annual meeting of the Southeastern Association of Law Schools at Hilton Head:

New Scholars Workshop Panel #11:

  • Jennifer Sheppard (Mercer) (moderator)
  • Kristin Balding Gutting (Charleston), Should the Fire Be Relit? Quid Pro Quo Should Not Extinguish the Charitable Deduction for Donations of Structures for Live Burn Training (Mentor: Vaughn James (Texas Tech))
  • Jennifer Bird-Pollan (Kentucky), Taxing Sovereign Wealth Funds: A Proposal For Change (Mentor: Richard Gershon (Dean, Mississippi)

Congressional Tax Reform:  In the 2010 elections, some Republican candidates called for an overhaul of the tax code. President Obama, in his State of the Union address, seemed to support the concept (although he did not necessarily support the Republican ideas). This panel will focus on pending and recently enacted proposals for tax reform in the areas of estate and gift tax, income taxes (individual and corporate), and other issues that have arisen in the current Congress.

  • Ronald Blasi (Georgia State) (moderator)
  • Don Castleman (Wake Forest)
  • Richard Gershon (Mississippi)
  • Vaughn James (Texas Tech)
  • William Turnier (UNC)
