Oxford Virginia Legal Dialogs - Tax Meets Non-Tax

Oxford Virginia Legal Dialogs

Tax Meets Non-Tax

In an environment of increasing academic specialization, Oxford-Virginia Legal Dialogs seeks to build bridges across academic disciplines by introducing a new kind of workshop. For each session, a tax scholar will select a non-tax, but law-related, work that is prominent in its own field and explain how the work is relevant to the study of taxation. The author of the work will then respond before we open the session to questions and discussion by workshop attendees. The series is sponsored by the University of Oxford Faculty of Law and the Virginia Center for Tax Law at UVA.

All sessions will take place on Zoom, and the work to be discussed will be distributed on this website or by email to registrants. 

The co-convenors are Professor Tsilly Dagan of Oxford and Professor Ruth Mason of UVA Law.
