|Method of Instruction||Bookstein on 11/17|
The Bookstein Tax Clinic is not a simulation course. The Clinic represents low-income taxpayers pro bono in their disputes with the IRS. Each student is assigned live cases and interacts directly with clients under the supervision of the Clinic’s faculty. Regular class sessions are held to cover substantive issues, procedural mattes, professional and ethical obligations in the practice of tax, as well as clinic administrative procedures and clinical skills in general. These sessions also include more informal discussions of specific clients’ issues. Additionally, students meet with the Clinic faculty on a regular basis to discuss and evaluate their assigned cases. The Clinic faculty is available for consultation anytime outside class sessions and scheduled meetings.
