The James Hausman Tax Law and Policy Workshop

The James Hausman Tax Law and Policy Workshop is designed to bring together distinguished tax scholars to share innovative scholarship that addresses a wide range of tax law and policy issues.

The workshop is in its eleventh year and has attracted leading tax academics from within Canada as well as from Argentina, Austria, Australia, Britain, Israel, and the United States.

The workshops are held on selected Wednesdays at lunchtime, 12:30-1:45 in the Solarium at 84 Queen's Park.  Light refreshments are generally served.

The workshop is currently organized by Professor Emily Satterthwaite. If you would like to receive e-mail notification of upcoming tax law and policy workshop seminar events, please contact: Nadia Gulezko at n.gulezko@utoronto.ca.
