Students handle a small number of real cases under the supervision of clinic faculty. Most of the education occurs through the experience of representing clients in disputes with the IRS through client interviews and fact gathering, tax law research, formulating action plans, preparation of written protests, negotiation, and possibly litigation. Students learn the skills of the practice of law while experiencing and analyzing the law, conducting fact investigation and engaging in direct client interaction. To avoid potential conflicts of interest, no student may work for the Internal Revenue Service or for a federal court with jurisdiction over tax matters at the same time the student is enrolled in Tax Clinic.
