James S. Eustice Memorial Fun Run (Thurs., May 8th, 7:15 AM) – TIME CHANGE

Eustice Marathon

Professor James S. Eustice,
NYC Marathon, 1979

Unfortunately, as a result of expected inclement weather, this event will be POSTPONED until Thursday, May 8th at 7:15 AM. We hope you can join us on the new date (when the weather will hopefully be more cooperative). Details are below.


On Thursday, May 8th from 7:15 AM to 8:30 AM, the Graduate Tax Program will host its first James S. Eustice Memorial Fun Run in Hudson River Park.

Professor James S. Eustice was a legendary tax scholar and lawyer, who served on the faculty of NYU School of Law for several decades, most recently as the Gerald L. Wallace Professor of Taxation Emeritus.  Professor Eustice passed away in 2011.  Professor Eustice’s treatise, Federal Income Taxation of Corporations and Shareholders, co-authored with Professor Boris Bittker of Yale Law School, has long been viewed as the authoritative work on the subject, and has been widely cited by the Supreme Court and used by tax academics and practitioners regularly.  In addition, Professor Eustice was an avid runner and he participated in dozens of marathons.

In honor of the arrival of spring and Professor Eustice, we hope you will join us for a fun, 3-mile run along the Hudson River.  The event will be very casual – so please join us whether you run, jog or speedwalk.  Members of the tax faculty, including Professors Kamin, Steines, Speck and Blank will participate.  Here are the key details:
