U.S. Tax Court Judge Albert G. Lauber to Speak in the Davidson Auditorium on Oct. 20


You are invited to take advantage of a special opportunity to learn about the U.S. Tax Court from one of the judges of that court, Albert G. Lauber. Judge Lauber will be speaking on the role of the court, discussing its workings and processes for taxpayers, and answering questions in the Davidson Auditorium on Tuesday, October 20, at 7 p.m.

The hourlong event is free and open to the public. Jindal School faculty and students are encouraged to attend. Judge Lauber is particularly looking forward to meeting and hearing from students.

Nominated to the court by President Barack Obama, Lauber has served since 2013. His distinguished career in the law includes past service as a clerk to the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun and as a tax assistant and deputy solicitor general in the U.S. Department of Justice. A longtime partner in a Washington, D.C., tax firm, he also previously served as director of the Graduate Tax and Securities Program and continues to serve as a visiting professor at the Georgetown University Law Center. He earned both a BA and JD from Yale University and an MA from Cambridge University.

Although the U.S. Tax Court is physically located in Washington, D.C., its 19 presidentially appointed judges travel nationwide to hear cases involving taxpayer disputes with the Internal Revenue Service, and Judge Lauber will come to JSOM after a day spent on the bench in Dallas.

Please encourage your students to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
