24th Annual Critical Tax Theory Conference At UC-Irvine

UC-Irvine hosts the 24th Annual Critical Tax Theory Conference (program):

UCI_Law_1lineblue_logoThe Critical Tax Theory Conference has a long history of fostering the work of both established and emerging scholars whose research challenges and enriches the tax law and policy literature. Critical tax scholars question assumptions of objectivity in tax, as their work explores how tax law and policy impact historically marginalized groups. At a time when tax policy is once again at the forefront of politics and public discourse, the work of these and other critical tax scholars supports a more robust discussion of the role for tax law in current and future social and economic policy.
