LAW T 528 Graduate Tax Practicum

Credits: 1-6, Max 6

The word "practicum," defined as "a period of work done by an advanced student that involves practical application of previously studied material," best describes this offering. A limited number of students will have an opportunity to work with a public or private organization (approved by the Associate Director of the Graduate Program in Taxation) doing work in the field of taxation and receive academic credit for the work performed. The opportunities in this respect will be developed and created by the Program's Director. No monetary compensation will be received by the student for their work. Students enrolled in the practicum will work in the tax field (a minimum during the quarter of eight per week) under the guidance of one or more experienced practitioners who will, at the end of the academic period, provide the supervising faculty member at the Law School with a final report summarizing the work performed and the practicum experience. The decision to award academic credit will be made by the supervising faculty member. This offering will be graded on a credit/no credit basis. One credit is given with every 30 hours worked for a maximum of four credits. Prerequisites: Introduction to Individual Income Taxation
