Course Description

This is the first semester of a year-long course using a mock litigation as a lens for studying issues in international tax law.  The case study may implicate domestic tax law of any jurisdiction, tax treaties, and EU law.  Students will be given a fact-pattern and will identify legal issues raised by the fact pattern.  Students will draft briefs for both the government and taxpayer on the issues raised by the mock litigation.   A subset of students enrolling in this course may be selected to compete with students from other institutions in the International and European Tax Moot Court. Students selected for the competition will engage in oral arguments in Leuven, Belgium in the spring semester.
