The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs is excited to announce the new Federal Tax Clinic, which will be part of the WilmerHale Legal Services Center in Jamaica Plain. The clinic will help defend the most vulnerable taxpayers while giving students the opportunity to learn tax practice and procedure.
The Federal Tax Clinic will begin in the 2015 fall semester and will be taught by Visiting Professor of Law, T. Keith Fogg.
Professor Fogg teaches at the Villanova University School of Law, where he also directs the Federal Tax Clinic. He is a national authority on tax procedure. He co-authors a blog with Professor Les Book entitled Procedurally Taxing, which focuses on current tax procedure issues and serves as the editor of the ABA Tax Section publication “Effectively Representing Your Client before the IRS.” Professor Fogg also authors the collection chapters in “IRS Practice and Procedure” created by Michael Saltzman and currently edited by Les Book.
He was chosen as the IRS Chief Counsel Robert H. Jackson National Attorney of the Year in 2007 and the ABA Tax Section Janet R. Spragens Pro Bono Award winner in 2015. He is a past chair of the ABA Tax Section Pro Bono and Tax Clinics Committee and a current member of the ABA Tax Section governing council.
