The Federal Bar Association Section on Taxation is once again sponsoring an annual writing competition and invites law students to participate. The annual competition was recently renamed the Donald C. Alexander Tax Law Writing Competition in honor of former IRS Commissioner (1973-1977) Don Alexander, who passed away in 2010. Mr. Alexander was a widely admired role model and advocate for writing skills and style in the area of tax law throughout his career.
All full-time and part-time law students currently seeking a juris doctor (J.D.) and all full-time law students currently seeking a master of laws (LL.M.)
at an accredited law school are eligible to enter the competition.
Students are allowed to submit any original paper conerning federal
taxation, so long as it is not written as part of paid employment,
concerning federal taxation. Papers should be between 20-50 pages,
doubled spaced. Seminar papers and articles submitted (but not yet
selected for publication) to law reviews, journals, or other
competitions are eligible.
