1L highlight

“The thing I loved about my 1L reading group, The Political Economy of Progressive Taxation, is that I finally got to talk about tax with my friends.”

In the Classroom

As part of the Tax Policy and Public Finance Colloquium, “I’ve gotten to read papers from established and up-and-coming academics in a field that really inspires me and intrigues me.”

2L Highlight: Practical Experience

The Regulatory Policy Clinic with Professor Ricky Revesz and the Institute of Policy Integrity's Jack Lienke ’11 “was a really meaningful experience for me. I was able to co-author a brief filed in the Ninth Circuit.”

Faculty Mentor

Professor Lily Batchelder’s guidance and career advice has “really made a difference in how I approach law and how I approach tax.”

The View from Washington Square

“At NYU Law it really feels like they take a personal interest in making sure you get to do what you want to be doing after law school.”
