In an effort to thoughtfully tackle a heated topic involving the current economic climate of the United States, the Pepperdine Law Review has teamed with Tax Analysts to host "Tax Advice for the Second Obama Administration." The event is scheduled for January 18th at Pepperdine's Malibu campus.
Coinciding with inauguration weekend, the symposium will feature four panel discussions with more than 25 prominent and well-known scholars and practitioners who will tackle the topic of how the tax code may change during the next four years. The symposium will also feature a keynote address by Columbia Law School's Michael Graetz and a luncheon address by David Cay Johnston, an investigative journalist and author and winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize.
"The Pepperdine Law Review decided to organize a symposium on tax advice because we knew it would be a relevant and timely no matter who won the election - Obama or Romney," said Michael Wood, Pepperdine Law Review symposium editor. "While we knew that the event would coincide with the presidential inauguration weekend, we had no idea that the fiscal cliff and debt limit crisises would make the symposium that much more of a timely event."
The symposium has been approved for Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit by the State Bar of California for 6.5 credit hours. Pepperdine University School of Law certifies that this activity conforms to the standards for approved education activities prescribed by the rules and regulations of the State Bar of California governing minimum continuing legal education.
Registration is open through Friday, January 11th. To register please visit http://law.pepperdine.edu/news-events/events/tax-advice/. For more information please call (310) 506-4653.
