The Center for Tax Law and Public Policy at Temple University Beasley School of Law serves as a hub for all tax-related activities at Temple Law, and provides easy access to the vast array of opportunities that exist for current Temple Law students, prospective students, and alumni seeking to expand their knowledge of tax policy.
Comprehensive Curriculum Options
Temple Law students can graduate with a strong foundation in tax as well as a comprehensive legal education. Temple’s robust tax curriculum includes writing and experiential opportunities, as well as the groundbreaking Low Income Taxpayer Policy and Practice course, and the Tax Policy Colloquium led by Harry (Hank) Gutman and Eric Solomon.
Learn Tax: Right from the Start
At Temple, students can dive into tax in their first year of study – and nearly a third of them do just that, choosing Taxation as their 1L elective. Nearly three-quarters of the Class of 2019 took at least one tax course, and 25% took more than one before graduation.
J.D. Tax Courses
The Frank and Rose Fogel Lecture
The annual Fogel Lecture is an opportunity for students to hear first-hand from leading tax policy-makers, tax administrators, and judges who are grappling with some of the most pressing tax issues of the day.
The work of Temple Law’s tax faculty advances understanding and development of Tax Law in the US and around the world.
