Albert G. Lauber, a visiting professor of law and director of the graduate tax and securities programs at Georgetown University Law Center, has been appointed as a judge of the United States Tax Court.
"Albert is an outstanding lawyer with a career of remarkable distinction, both in the public and private realms, and we have been very fortunate to have him playing a leading role in our tax program,” said Georgetown Law Dean William M. Treanor. “He has helped build what was already one of the nation's preeminent tax programs, and I know he will be a superb judge on the Tax Court.”
Before joining the Law Center in 2006, Lauber spent 17 years as a partner in Caplin & Drysdale, a Washington D.C., tax firm. There, he specialized in tax litigation at the trial and appellate levels, tax procedure, taxation of non-profit organizations, state and local taxation and constitutional law.
From 1983 to 1988, he served in the U.S. Department of Justice as deputy solicitor general and previously as tax assistant to the Solicitor General. He was a law clerk to Justice Harry A. Blackmun of the U.S. Supreme Court and Judge Malcom R. Wilkey of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Lauber received a B.A. and J.D. from Yale and an M.A. from Clare College, Cambridge.
