Designed to teach the fundamentals of federal income taxation in order to prepare students, as lawyers, to recognize and appreciate income tax consequences of transactions and events they encounter in general practice of law. Students are introduced to essential legal skills of learning to read and understand the language of statutes (the Internal Revenue Code) as well as that of an administrative agency (the Internal Revenue Service) and judicial interpretations of the statutes and agency pronouncements. Students who wish to take additional courses in taxation should consider taking Income Taxation in their second year because it is a prerequisite to all of the other income tax courses.
