The Ethical Issues in Tax Practice course focuses on some of the ethical issues that arise for those involved in the tax world, whether as tax advisors, in-house tax counsel, tax officials, or tax policy makers. The emphasis is on the classroom discussion of several scenarios that raise ethical issues. Guests are invited to the class to speak on related issues, including corporate social responsibility, and on the limits of acceptable tax avoidance. It is an opportunity for tax professionals (or potential tax professionals) to work through and think through some of the potential ethical issues they will face (or may already have faced) in practice.
The course is taught by Dr Philip Baker, QC
