2014 Tax Symposium

The Pepperdine Law Review and Tax Analysts are pleased to invite you to a symposium on "Tax Reform in a Time of Crisis." Although the president and Congress claim that tax reform is a priority for the coming year, the path forward is uncertain given partisan gridlock in Washington, D.C., and an unusually large number of domestic and international crises. The symposium will feature a keynote address by Joseph Bankman, Ralph M. Parsons Professor of Law and Business at Stanford Law School, with commentary by Edward Kleinbard, professor of law at USC Gould School of Law. Bruce Bartlett, former deputy assistant secretary of the treasury and tax author (The Benefit and the Burden: Tax Reform—Why We Need It and What It Will Take) and journalist (New York Times and Tax Notes), will deliver the luncheon address. The symposium will include panel discussions on "Individual/Estate and Gift Tax Reform" and "Business/International Tax Reform," as well as on "Institutional Perspectives on Tax Reform in a Time of Crisis."

This symposium has been approved for Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit by the State Bar of California for 6.5 credit hours.
