Introduction to Tax Research
Tax represents an important and ever-evolving area of law. Regardless of whether an attorney chooses to specialize in tax, such issues arise in a host of other legal practice areas so it is important to cultivate at least a basic familiarity with the resources and issues involved. This workshop will introduce students to the basic authorities and structure of tax law, introduce several important publications, and demonstrate tax-specific e-resources used by tax attorneys and accountants.
