Pepperdine Tax Policy Workshop Series (Spring 2014)

Pepperdine Law School (2013)One of the many joys of my new life at Pepperdine is the opportunity to teach Tax Policy for the first time in my career.  Inspired by Lenadra Lederman's discussion on this blog in 2008-09 of the ideal structure for a tax workshop series, and the experience of over a dozen law schools with such a series (Boston College, Columbia, Connecticut, Indiana, Loyola-L.A., Michigan, NYU, Northwestern, Pennsylvania, San Diego, Toronto, UCLA, and Washington), I'm delighted to have 19 Pepperdine students embark on the journey with me this semester.  I've divided the course into seven two-week chunks, focused on a tax professor's paper:

  • Jan. 15:   Adam Chodorow (Arizona State)
  • Feb. 3:    Richard Winchester (Thomas Jefferson)
  • Feb. 12:  Leigh Osofsky (Miami)
  • Mar. 3:   Brian Galle (Boston College)
  • Mar. 24: Sarah Lawsky (UC-Irvine)
  • Apr. 7:    Vic Fleischer (San Diego)
  • Apr. 21:  Jordan Barry (San Diego)

I will of course blog each professor's paper on the day of their presentation.  SoCal professors and practitioners are welcome to attend any of the sessions (11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.) -- just let me know.
