NYU Law’s International Tax Program (ITP) has announced the formation of the Practice Council, a new organization that will serve in an advisory and supporting capacity for the ITP. Its members, distinguished tax practitioners from 15 countries, will promote the ITP throughout the world, provide assistance in recruiting students and global faculty, participate in seminars and other programs at the Law School, help with fundraising and scholarship efforts, and advise on curriculum development. It will meet once a year, usually in New York. “We expect great things from the new Practice Council,” says ITP director David Rosenbloom. “It will bolster our educational efforts in many ways.”
The ITP provides full-time, foreign-trained students a firm grounding in the U.S. international tax system and offers multiple courses that reflect the globalization of tax law principles and practices. It draws students from around the world – participants to date have come from 40 countries.
