The Law Review is currently accepting abstracts for papers to be considered for publication in fall 2014. Below is a list of topics expected to be addressed at the symposium by prominent tax practitioners, scholars, and policy makers:
- Panel I: Withholding and Information Reporting from 1913 to FATCA
- Panel II: Debt, Taxes, and the Economy
- Panel III: U.S. Tax Policy in a Global Economy
- Panel IV: Perspectives on the Practice of Tax Law (including tax attorneys’ professional and ethical responsibilities and the provision of pro bono legal services)
The Law Review will also consider papers on other topics relating to the theme of the symposium.The School announces that papers will be published in connection with their upcoming October 4, 2013 symposium ” The 100th Anniversary of the Revenue Act of 1913: Marking a Century of Income Tax Law in the United States.”
To submit, send your abstract for an original article, essay, reflection, and/or scholarly analysis pertaining to the federal income tax, the history and future of tax law and policy, and other issues that arise from both federal and state tax laws. The abstract should describe the type of article you will write; the issue(s) you will address and anticipated thesis; and how you will analyze or evaluate the issue(s).
The abstract is due by September 3, 2013 and should be no more than 500 words.
Send in MS Word format together with your CV, to Editor-In-Chief G. William Bartholomew ’14 at [email protected]. If selected, the final paper will be due by January 6, 2014, and may not exceed 50 pages in length, double-spaced, including footnotes. That’s right, 50 pages. This isn’t a short op-ed piece.
Space in the issue is limited and papers will be selected on a rolling basis, so early submission is recommended. Upon consideration of your abstract, the Law Review may also extend an invitation to speak at the symposium (travel and accommodations provided), which will be held at New York Law School. This is a great opportunity to get noticed in the tax world – especially for law students, young lawyers and professors.
