The New York Law School Law Review has issued a call for papers for its October 4, 2013 symposium, The 100th Anniversary of the Revenue Act of 1913: Marking a Century of Income Tax Law in the United States:

The event is being organized by the Law Review and the Graduate Tax Program at New York Law School. The symposium chair is Ann F. Thomas, Otto L. Walter Distinguished Professor of Tax Law at New York Law School.
