This Workshop will alternate with the Law and Economics Workshop. See Official Notice Board for published schedule.

The Blackboard program will be used for this course. Students must self-enrol in Blackboard prior to the start of school in both terms in order to obtain course information.

This seminar runs in conjunction with the James Hausman Tax Law and Policy Workshop. The James Hausman Tax Law and Policy Workshop brings domestic and international tax law and policy scholars to the law school to present current research work 8-10 times throughout the academic year.
In the past, the workshop has included presentations by leading tax scholars including Jack Mintz, Brian Arnold and Richard Bird (Canada), Assaf Likhovski and Tsilly Dagan (Israel), Eduardo Baistrocchi (Argentina), Michael Lang (Austria), and Daniel Shaviro, Reuven Avi-Yonah, Edward McCaffery, Kirk Stark and Joel Slemrod (United States).

Evaluation
Students will attend all the workshops (8-10) throughout the year, preparing two-page comments in advance of each workshop (60%), and will also be responsible for one longer paper of approximately 3000 words relating to the topic of any one of the workshops (30%). Workshop participation will count for 10% of the grade for the course.
