Tax Professor Problem

Postby cmurr777 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 4:45 pm

In law schools, "tax law" is a sub-discipline and area of specialist study. Tax law specialists are often employed in consultative roles, and may also be involved in litigation. Many U.S. law schools require about 30 semester credit hours of required courses and approximately 60 hours or more of electives. Law students pick and choose available courses on which to focus before graduation with the J.D. degree in the United States. This freedom allows law students to take many tax courses such as federal taxation, estate and gift tax, and estates and successions before completing the Juris Doctor and taking the bar exam in a particular U.S. state.
There are many Master of Laws (LL.M) programs currently being offered in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Netherlands etc. Many of these programs offer the opportunity to focus on domestic and international taxation. In the United States, most LL.M. programs require that the candidate be a graduate of an American Bar Association-accredited law school. In other countries a graduate law degree is sufficient for admission to LL.M. in Taxation law programs.

hahaha, made me laugh.

This is just frustrating as fuck. I guess there's basically nothing I can do though besides learn from it.

Just apologize, maybe ask if there is anyway to make it up. Like perhaps submitting 20 questions? Although that probably won't work as that will favor you so. I would just go ask and apologize and see if there is anything you can do.
