Georgetown Law is pleased to announce the formation of the Judge Albert G. Lauber Tax Scholarship. The scholarship honors visiting professor and director of the Georgetown Law graduate tax and securities program Albert Lauber. In 2013, Professor Lauber was appointed as a judge of the United States Tax Court; his partner and esteemed fellow professor Craig Hoffman approached Dean William M. Treanor about instituting a named scholarship to mark the occasion.
Professor Lauber holds a B.A. and J.D. from Yale, and an M.A. from Clare College, Cambridge. He clerked for Supreme Court Associate Justice Harry A. Blackmun and Judge Malcolm R. Wilkey of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He spent seventeen years as a partner at D.C. tax firm Caplin & Drysdale, specializing in tax litigation at the trial and appellate levels, tax procedure, taxation of non-profit organizations, state and local taxation, and constitutional law.
Albert joined Georgetown Law seven years ago as a visiting professor and director of the graduate tax and securities program. Albert's enthusiasm for teaching and professional distinction made him an invaluable asset to the Law Center.
The Judge Albert G. Lauber Tax Scholarship will be awarded yearly to a graduate student in the Taxation LL.M. program. If you would like to make a gift to the scholarship fund, please click here.
