The Northwestern University School of Law Tax Program and the Northwestern University Law Review have issued a call for papers for a symposium on 100 Years Under the Income Tax to be held on April 5, 2013 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment:
The symposium will consider not only the history and future of income as a tax base, but also its effect and future impact on various legal, social and political institutions. Topics of particular interest would include:
- The effect of the income tax on other substantive areas of law, including property, business associations, marital property law, and contracts
- The effect of the income tax on social institutions including marriage, and other family relations
- The effect of the income tax on the ways in which capital is accumulated and transferred.
Preference will be given to unpublished works near completion; abstracts of no less than 750 words of works in progress may also be considered. Please submit drafts as PDF documents no later than October 15, 2012 to Prof. Charlotte Crane. General inquiries regarding the conference should be directed to Charlotte Crane or Michael Cooper.
