I will be doing my annual post on TaxProf moves next month, but Harvard today issued this press release announcing that Anne Alstott is leaving Yale to join the Harvard faculty:
Anne Alstott, an expert on federal income taxation, corporate taxation and tax policy as well as on social welfare policy, family policy, and feminism and economic justice, will join the Harvard Law School faculty as a tenured professor, Dean Elena Kagan ’86 announced today.
Alstott is presently the Jacquin D. Bierman Professor of Taxation at Yale Law School, where she has held a tenured professorship since 1997 and the Bierman chair since 2004. At Yale, she has taught federal income taxation, corporate taxation, and subjects related to taxation and social policy. She has won three awards for outstanding teaching.
"I'm thrilled that Anne has decided to join our faculty," said Dean Elena Kagan '86. "She is in the very first rank of interdisciplinary legal experts on taxation and social welfare policy; her scholarship is among the most creative, thoughtful, and influential in her field. And she is a spectacular teacher, whom students will love to learn from and work with."
