This morning the ABA Section of Taxation kicks off its virtual midyear meeting with plenary addresses by two distinguished speakers, William Gale and Loretta Collins Argrett:
10:30 am– 12 pm ET
Opening Plenary Session (Non-CLE)
Speakers: William G. Gale, Co-director, Tax Policy Center; Loretta Collins Argrett, retired, US Justice Department, Tax Division
Gale will address issues of race and racism in public finance and economics. Argrett will revisit her incredible tax career, and discuss the recently launched Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fellowship, named in her honor.
Loretta Collins Argrett was previously featured in the U.S. Tax Court’s Tax Trailblazers series, which I highly recommend.
The week promises many excellent CLE programs. Keith is speaking at the Court Procedure & Practice session on Wednesday on Boechler v. Commissioner, alongside Bryan Camp, Amy Feinberg, and Kandyce Korotky. Les is speaking at the Individual and Family Taxation session on Friday on math error notices, alongside Aisha Servaty, Rochelle Hodes, and Josh Beck.
