Tax, Estates & Trusts

The Tax Law Curriculum provides a comprehensive introduction to tax law and policy.  Courses are designed not only for those who wish to practice as tax attorneys, but for students who look forward to careers in business law, family law, employee benefits, nonprofit work, and legislative service.   The individual income tax course is a class of general interest that most students take, since taxes impact almost all practice areas.  More advanced classes include corporate taxation, partnership taxation, estate planning, international taxation, not-for-profit organizations, and seminars focusing on tax policy and finance.  In addition, the estates and trusts course covers intestate succession, wills, and trusts and offers a sound preparation for the California bar exam.
