IRS Chief Counsel Donald L. Korb announced today (IR-2008-54) that he has selected David Hasen (Michigan) as the 2008-2009 Professor in Residence:
We are excited to have David join us in the fall to carry on the fine tradition we reinstituted last year when first Calvin Johnson, and after him Gregg Polsky, joined us as professors in residence,” Korb said. “It is an extremely worthwhile program for both our lawyers, particularly the more recent hires, and for the law professors.”
Polsky’s term as professor in residence will end on June 30. Hasen will serve a nine-month term starting in late October. ...
The IRS Office of Chief Counsel revived its Professor in Residence program in 2006 after being dormant since the late 1980s. The program provides some of the nation’s top legal academicians the opportunity to contribute to the development of legal tax policy and administration.
