The NYU Graduate Tax Program is hosting two events today:
- Ask the Expert (Witness): A Conversation With Professor Dan Shaviro: "What happens when a law professor becomes an expert witness? What sorts of challenges and issues does he or she face, what’s it like, and how does it relate to teaching and research activities? Professor Daniel Shaviro, Wayne Perry Professor of Taxation (NYU), will address these questions and more, based generally on his recent experiences."
- Recent Developments in Tax Controversy, sponsored by New York Region of the Federal Bar Association Tax Section: "The presentation will include a discussion on recent court opinions on economic substance, debt-versus-equity, expert witness testimony, and discovery. The primary speakers will be Brian Power (Mayer Brown) and Elizabeth McGee (Shearman & Sterling)."
