Law School Hosts Leading Tax Scholars and Economists

Summer 2011

This June, Columbia Law School hosted a small gathering of leading tax professors and public finance economists. Organized by Professor Alex Raskolnikov, the invitation-only event served as a workshop-type environment for fewer than 20 leading scholars, each of whom presented a working paper on an issue related to tax policy and economic taxation. Dean David M. Schizer was among the participants, many of whom traveled from around the country to attend.

The two-day event included scholars from Harvard Business School, Yale, Boston University, Northwestern, and the University of California, Irvine, among others.
