Prof. Linda Galler’s Book Regulation of Federal Tax Practice Reviewed in Tax Notes
Professor Linda Galler’s book, Regulation of Federal Tax Practice, co-authored with Professor Michael Lang of Chapman University School of Law, has been reviewed in the April 11, 2011 edition ofTax Notes. The book is part of The Graduate Tax Series, the first and only series of course materials designed for use in tax LL.M. programs.
Aside from the clarity of organization and careful selection of case material, the textbook’s fundamental strength undoubtedly rests in its practical, highly relevant questions, strategically placed throughout each chapter. Sometimes textbooks contain arcane questions that while heuristic in nature, are utterly impractical. This textbook is just the opposite: Its examples are practical in nature, evidencing that its authors are immersed in practice themselves, had the assistance of others who are so immersed, or a combination of both. Students who struggle with discerning the answers to these problems will no doubt be the benefactors of that struggle. In responding to the problems posited, professors have the luxury of using a well-prepared teacher’s manual that shares the authors’ perspectives and supplies proposed solutions.
