Notre Dame Law | December 17, 2015
Notre Dame Law School will launch a new clinic – the Notre Dame Tax Clinic – to help law students gain legal experience and to serve the community. The clinic will be funded by a grant from the Internal Revenue Service and support from the University of Notre Dame’s Office of Research.
The clinic, approved by the faculty this month, will strengthen the tax law program for law students with the addition of an experiential component, and add a second litigation clinic, said Bob Jones, associate dean for experiential programs.
“The clinic will address an important legal need for low-income and English-as-a-second language people in the region,” Jones said. “A surprisingly large proportion of IRS disputes with taxpayers involve low-income people and immigrants, very few of whom have legal representation.
