LAW G807: Professional Conduct in Tax Practice
Summer 2021 • Section 51

Course Description

In the typical contexts of most tax practitioners (that is, advice rather than litigation, and, for an accountant, advice
rather than audit or another assurance examination), the essential professional-conduct principles and rules are
about the same for lawyers, accountants, and actuaries. Moreover, each kind of professional can learn more about
how to interpret her profession’s rules by studying another profession’s rules. In this course, a student will take a
focused look at how professional-conduct norms apply in specific contexts of tax practice. Using what you learn, you
can spot difficult professional-conduct problems and be prepared to manage them with confidence. (Research writing
seminar, no exam)
