STATE INCOME TAX CLINIC ADVANCED
(LAWN-5007) - 2 UNIT
In this clinic, students represent their own clients who have California State income tax appeals pending before the California Office of Tax Appeals (OTA). The opposing side is the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB). Students will interview clients, gather evidence, conduct legal research, draft briefs and letters, and (possibly) make oral arguments to the administrative law judges at the OTA. For law students, even if you do not think you are interested in tax law, this course will help you determine whether a career in litigation is right for you!
