Co-sponsored by Tulane's Murphy Institute and Tulane Law School 

The Tulane Tax Roundtable brings together tax scholars from around the country, resident Tulane Faculty, and Tulane students for discussion and debate about important tax policy issues of our time. The roundtable showcases the drafts and works-in-progress of its participants and subjects these works to rigorous analysis in a discussant-driven workshop format. All are welcome to attend. All sessions will take place in Room 202 of Tulane Law School. Please email Professor Shu-Yi Oei at soei@tulane.edu for more information.
