Tax Lecture Series
In recognition of the important role of taxation in our economy and society, in 2006 the University of Connecticut School of Law established the Tax Lecture Series. The lecture series brings prominent international tax practitioners, scholars, and government officials to campus to speak on tax topics. Professor Mason moderates the lectures.
Lectures are open to the public. In some cases audio of the lecture is available for download.
