LAW286  AW  TAX PLANNING SKILLS

Course Description
In this course, students will learn essential tax planning skills. While this course may be of particular interest to students who plan to practice tax law in some fashion, the course will be valuable to any students wishing to gain experience regarding: (1) advising clients in a planning setting, or (2) actually working with a complex statutory and administrative area of law in a practice setting. The task of the class will not be to learn a particular body of knowledge, but rather develop skills researching in, advising clients about, and serving as an expert regarding a complex statutory and administrative scheme. Students will gain experience researching tax issues, analyzing tax and non tax consequences of their advice for clients, practicing interviewing and other client skills, drafting tax documents, and making tax presentations.
