The Graduate Tax Program Annual Professional Responsibility Workshop (TAX 403)

All students in the Graduate Tax Program are encouraged to attend the Annual Workshop each year. In order to graduate, all students must submit a five-page response paper outlining what was learned from the program and how those lessons can be used in practice. The challenges of tax practice are numerous and it is important to set aside time to focus on professional responsibility and ethics.

The theme was “Attorney Conduct and Misconduct in Tax Practice”. Topics included:

Tax Opinions: Best Practices for Establishing the Factual Basis
Elder Abuse: When You Must Act and What You Should Do
Implicit Bias: What It Is and How Lawyers Can Address It in Practice

The keynote address, Attorney Misconduct and Rule 8.4 (c): Varsity Blues and Other Examples, was presented by Claude Millman, Partner, Kostelanetz & Fink LLP

This program offered 4 Ethics CLE credits (NY transitional and nontransitional) and 1.5 DIversity, Inclusion, and Elimination of Bias CLE Credits (NY nontransitional).
