One of the great benefits of being a law student and being trained in the critical disciplines of a legal approach to problem-solving is that all doors remain open to you in terms of your career path and progression.  This is true upon graduation, after taking (and passing!) the bar, after serving in a judicial clerkship or, frankly, at any time along one’s progression over the years as a lawyer at a firm, a business and for those engaged in public service.  Today more than ever, businesses, companies and enterprises of all kinds truly value the ability to problem-solve and exercise...

Taxation!  The mere thought is enough to strike fear into the hearts and minds of law students. Yet a hardy band of RWU grads has found that tax law can offer a promising career path. It does require some extra effort, though. In the years since I returned to full-time teaching, thirty or so of our graduates have moved on to earn LL.M.s in Taxation from some of the best graduate tax programs in the country – B.U., Villanova, Georgetown, Florida and Miami, among others.  This fall, two more RWU grads are joining that group.
