The James Hausman Tax Law and Policy Workshop brings emerging and internationally-recognized tax law and policy scholars to the law school to present their current research. It meets approximately seven to eight times throughout the academic year.

In past years, the workshop has featured presentations by researchers from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Israel, and the United States.

Evaluation
Students are expected to attend all workshop meetings and to prepare a two-page comment in advance of each workshop (60 percent). They will also be responsible for one longer paper of approximately 3000 words relating to one of the workshops, or an alternative tax law and policy topic (30 percent). Students participation in the workshop question-and-answer discussion will also be evaluated (10 percent). Note: Students must pass both the paper and the participation component to receive credit for the workshop.
