Tax Law and Public Finance Workshop

Tuesdays 3:30-5:30pm in Hotung Faculty Dining Room (Room 2001)

This workshop introduces students to current research in tax policy and gives them an opportunity to develop skills in reading and critiquing contemporary legal and economic scholarship. Each week, the workshop hosts a tax scholar, public finance economist, or other expert presenting a working paper on issues of tax law, public finance, and related fields.  This year, Professors Brooks and Grinberg are co-convening the workshop.

The workshop is open to the public, and we encourage members of the D.C. tax community to attend and participate in our discussions. The workshop is held at the Georgetown University Law Center, near Capitol Hill, at 600 New Jersey Ave. NW. It meets in the Faculty Dining Room (Room 2001) of the Hotung Building.
