Tax Prof (and Associate Dean) Samuel A. Donaldson is leaving the University of Washington School of Law to join the faculty at Georgia State University College of Law. Sam says "I am very excited for the move to Atlanta, as my fiancée lives and works there. It will be nice to be in the same city for once. While it is very difficult to leave Seattle and the University of Washington, I feel incredibly fortunate to join the faculty at Georgia State." From Sam's faculty web page:
Professor Donaldson teaches a number of tax and estate planning courses, as well as courses in the areas of property, commercial law and professional responsibility. Professor Donaldson is a four-time recipient of the Philip A. Trautman Professor of the Year award from the School of Law's Student Bar Association. He is an Academic Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) and a member of the bar in Washington, Oregon, and Arizona.
Professor Donaldson is the author of the Thomson-West casebook, Federal Income Taxation of Individuals, a co-author of the Price on Contemporary Estate Planning treatise published by CCH, and a co-author of Federal Wealth Transfer Taxes, a reference published by Thomson-West. Professor Donaldson has served as the Harry R. Horrow Visiting Professor of International Law at Northwestern University and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. An amateur crossword constructor, his puzzles have been published in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and USA Today.
