Tax Clinic

Students in the Tax Clinic represent individuals with

federal and state tax controversies through administrative advocacy and

litigation in the United States Tax Court. Students can expect to gain

exposure to a broad range of tax problems, both substantive and procedural,

that will be valuable when working with clients of any income level in the

future. Students also work with community organizations to provide

information about tax issues and taxpayer rights and responsibilities to

individuals who speak English as a second language.

The Clinic is a 4 credit course and meets the New York Pro-Bono requirement. Students must enroll in the 3 credit clinic and the 1 credit field component, taken concurrently. The 3 credit clinic and 1 credit field component are mandatory graded and ineligible for letter grade conversion to pass ("P") election.

The Clinic fulfills the Law School's professional responsibility requirement for graduation, but does not fulfill the New York State Bar ethics requirement unless students also simultaneously enroll in Law 402 Ethics Colloquium section 002.
