Teaching Tax Law
Spring 2022 Special Issue
In the second issue of its 19th volume, the Pittsburgh Tax Review will publish a series of contributions addressing the teaching of tax law. The aim of this special issue is to collect in one place the insights of leading tax teachers as a service for all those who are interested in and devoted to educating current law students and future tax lawyers. The Pittsburgh Tax Review has already secured the participation of five distinguished scholar/teachers: Alice Abreu (Temple University Beasley School of Law), Samuel Donaldson (Georgia State University College of Law), Heather Field (UC Hastings College of Law), Deborah Geier (Cleveland State University Cleveland-Marshall College of Law), and Katherine Pratt (Loyola Law School, Los Angeles).
The Pittsburgh Tax Review invites proposals from others for one to two additional contributions to be included in this special issue. Proposals for a contribution of between 8,000 and 10,000 words are welcome from all who teach tax law. Potential contributions to the special issue might take a variety of forms. For example, contributions to the special issue might describe classroom techniques and innovations, innovations in course design or structure, or novel courses. Or contributions might explore the lessons learned during the time we have all now spent teaching during the pandemic and consider how that might impact our teaching once we all return to the classroom. Or contributions might be completely forward looking and propose novel ideas or experiments in teaching that have not yet been implemented. Or contributions might approach the topic of teaching tax law from an entirely different perspective.
Interested individuals should send an abstract outlining the topic and substance of their proposed contribution to the Pittsburgh Tax Review by email at email@example.com. Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should be submitted by May 15, 2021. Proposals will be reviewed and invitations will be issued by June 15, 2021. Those invited to participate will be required to submit tentative drafts by October 15, 2021 (to be shared among all of the contributors to the special issue) and final drafts ready for editing by the Pittsburgh Tax Review’s staff of student editors by December 31, 2021.
