Dean Laura Rosenbury has announced that Mindy Herzfeld (right) will join the faculty of the University of Florida Levin College of Law as a Professor of Tax Practice and Director of the LL.M. in International Tax Program:
Since 2014, Professor Herzfeld has been a Contributing Editor for Tax Analysts, authoring weekly columns on international tax policy developments and cross-border transactions in Tax Notes International. Prior to that, Professor Herzfeld worked as an international tax advisor for Deloitte Tax LLP, based in its Washington D.C. and New York offices. She began her career at Weil Gotshal & Manges in New York City and has also worked as tax counsel at Ford Motor Company. Professor Herzfeld received her J.D. from Yale Law School and her LL.M. in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center. She has published over 100 articles in Tax Notes International and Tax Notes, many of which have been cited in law review articles by the leading international tax scholars, in Congressional Research Service Reports and in Treasury Department studies.
As Director of the LL.M. International Tax Program at UF Law, Professor Herzfeld will take the reins of a highly successful program developed by Culverhouse Professor Emeritus Lawrence Lokken and the late Professor Paul McDaniel. The UF International Tax Program attracts a large body of students from Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa that includes not only aspiring international tax lawyers but also foreign tax professors and government finance officials seeking a broader understanding of international tax policy.
“We are very excited that Professor Herzfeld will be joining our faculty and spearheading our efforts to build upon an already successful international tax program,” said Dean Rosenbury. “Professor Herzfeld will help the faculty recruit the very best students to the program, assist all of our tax students find rewarding jobs upon graduation, and work to develop partnerships with programs and faculties here at UF and around the globe. I look forward to working together.”
