Professor Batchelder returned to the Finance Committee’s Tax Section after serving as a law clerk there in 2001. “I’m glad to welcome Lily back to the Senate Finance Committee’s tax team,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus. “Lily’s wide range of experience and expert knowledge of tax and public policy make her an invaluable advisor to the Finance Committee as we continue our efforts to create jobs, help small businesses grow, close the tax gap, and explore tax reform.”

Batchelder joined the NYU Law faculty in 2005, and has taught Corporate Tax I and II, Income Taxation, and the Tax and Social Policy Seminar.  Her recent scholarship has focused on tax incentives and estate tax reform.
