It’s (Always) Tax Day: A Law Student’s Guide To What Tax Lawyers Actually Do
Tax Law is not necessarily what you would expect. It is a broad-based practice, with different substantive focus areas in federal as well as state and local law. It covers a range of opportunities that spans the public sector, private sector, non-profits, think tanks and academia.
Join us for a discussion led by tax practitioners with experience in government, the private sector and academia, who will speak about their career trajectories and what they do on a day-to-day basis, and will offer some helpful advice on how to pursue a career in tax. Learn about opportunities available to student members and newly admitted attorneys through membership in the NYSBA Tax Section. There will be a question and answer period at the end of the session.
Interested students may also elect to sign up during the registration process for a one-hour, one-on-one, virtual “coffee chat” with a tax practitioner that will take place at a mutually agreed upon time following the event. You must attend the panel presentation to register for the one-on-one.
