Taxation

Tax courses are essential for all students. Every lawyer needs to recognize the tax issues involved in the work of litigators, corporate lawyers, estate planners and even public interest lawyers.

Solo practitioners and lawyers in most small and medium-sized firms, many of which handle the majority of their clients' business and personal matters, become involved in tax issues in a range of business and estate-planning contexts.

Federal Income Taxation, the basic course, provides an introduction to the fundamental principles of tax law, and teaches students how to read and interpret the Internal Revenue Code. Federal Income Taxation provides a foundation for all the other tax offerings. Students interested in a business or real estate practice should take Corporate Taxation and advanced courses examining specialized topics within the fields of corporate law and estate planning.

Basic courses are those which introduce fundamental concepts and provide the necessary background to pursue advanced courses in the area.
