Mini presenTations by tax scholars

During this term we will meet fortnightly. For this week’s meeting we will be able to hear about tax research across the academic spectrum and from around the world. For information on upcoming and past meetings click on our “UPCOMING MEETINGS” tab.

We have five mini-presentations:

  • Professor of Law Neil Buchanan, from the University of Florida, will be explaining how he chooses topics for scholarly writing, how theoretical research advances the conversation and how to deal with economics in tax analysis.

  • Philip Baker QC, tax barrister and a visiting Professor, will be discussing the practising lawyer’s approach to academic tax law and the role of practicing lawyers who also engage in academic work, as well outlining his own journey into tax academia and some of his current research plans.

  • Dr Amir Pichhadze, from the University of Oxford, will be bringing his international academic experience to bear on the subject of tax law teaching and research.

  • Christina Allen, lecturer in law at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia, will be using her forthcoming tax project about definitions of wealth and income to illustrate the challenges of framing and narrowing a research question.

  • Gabriel Nwodo, a Nigerian law graduate, will be articulating why he is returning to academic study, as a newly arrived LLM postgraduate student at the University of Cambridge.

As usual, there will be the opportunity for discussion and asking questions.

The one-hour meeting will be start at 5:00pm British Summer Time. If you would like a calendar invitation sent to you via Teams/Outlook, please email . Otherwise, the link for the meeting is here:

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
