Survey of Tax
This course will introduce new Villanova Graduate Tax students to various tax practice areas, including tax policy, individual, employment, corporate, M&A, estate and gift, state and local, employee benefits, and international tax. The principal goal of the course is to provide students with a basic understanding of the key concepts and issues within each practice area that will serve as a foundation for future study and practice. The course also has three breakout sections during the semester. One section where non-lawyers are introduced to the basics of law, and the other where the lawyers are introduced to the basics of accounting.
