Skills & Values: Federal Income Taxation (2011)
Each chapter in Skills & Values: Federal Income Taxation addresses a specific topic covered in most introductory Tax law school courses. The chapters begin with an introduction to help bridge the gap between the actual practice of law and the doctrine and theory studied in class. Students will then have the opportunity to engage in active, "hands on" learning by working through a stand-alone exercise that simulates a real-life legal dilemma. The exercises are as authentic as possible, incorporating materials such as IRS forms, schedules, and publications; wage and income transcripts; deficiency notices; correspondence; judicial opinions; statutes; and revenue rulings. The self-assessment tools suggests ways that a practicing attorney might have approached each exercise. It is not meant to provide "the answer," but to identify issues and strategies students should have considered in order to effectively represent a client.
