Tax law covers income tax, federal tax procedure, corporate tax, ethics, as well as a variety of electives. In addition to the traditional personal and business related tax law courses, Chapman has made a particular effort to include an extensive array of advanced estate planning and advanced business and personal tax planning courses.
The full-time professors in the Taxation law program at Chapman University include casebook authors and leaders in committees of the tax section of the American Bar Association as well as respected adjunct professors who bring a real-world dynamic to the classroom.
