Professional Responsibility for Tax Lawyers
J.D. Course 1170 (cross-listed) | 3 credit hours
This course examines the ethical rules for tax lawyers. Tax lawyers are subject to the general rules of professional responsibility and to special rules of professional responsibility under federal tax law. We will study both sets of ethical obligations by considering the tax lawyer as advisor, litigator, and public servant. The course may be used to satisfy the J.D. professional-responsibility requirement for graduation; it is also open to students in the Tax LL.M. program.
This course meets the J.D. Professional Responsibility graduation requirement. Students may receive credit for only one offering in the Professional Responsibility series.
