Taxation Law

Focusing on tax law can lead to employment in private firms as a tax and estate planning specialist, as well as jobs for accounting firms, the government, and charitable organizations. Coursework exposes students to theoretical and practical issues related to federal, state, and local taxation, and students develop the skills to solve complex tax problems.

Students can enhance their marketability by participating in the Tax Law clinic, which provides tax-related legal services to members of the community. Student clinicians handle all aspects of controversy with the IRS and represent clients in cases before the U.S. Tax Court.
