Prof. Linda Galler Publishes Essay on Becoming a Tax Lawyer

Linda Galler, Professor of Law

Professor Linda Galler’s essay “Why Do Law Students Want to Become Tax Lawyers?” has been published in The Tax Lawyer (Winter 2015). Professor Galler was invited to contribute this essay to a compendium of papers commemorating the 75th anniversary of the American Bar Association Section of Taxation.

In the Foreword, the editor writes:

“The next paper addresses the topic of why law students decide to become tax lawyers. It was written by Linda Galler, a tax professor at Hofstra University School of Law and a long-time member of the Section. Professor Galler has had a lot of experience and success over the years in convincing students to enter the practice of tax law. Her paper lays out an intriguing list of reasons why law students develop an interest in tax law. The list includes a number of reasons that played into my decision to become a tax lawyer, including an interest in business or financial transactions, professors who made the study of tax law interesting, tax touches everything, and intellectual challenge. … Professor Galler’s paper rings so true.”
