Clinical Program Highlight: Tax Clinic

St. Thomas Law affords our students unique opportunities to complete transformative internships and clinics. Through the clinical program, our students begin the transition from student to practitioner as they are provided with individual, personalized expertise and hands-on legal experience under the supervision of our clinical faculty.

The Tax Clinic gives students the opportunity to work with underserved communities and, under supervision, represent low-income clients involved in tax controversies before the IRS, District Counsel, and the U.S. Tax Court. Students perform outreach services by providing education on the rights and responsibilities of U.S. taxpayers to the community particularly for those whom English is a second language.

Ashley Bryan described the hands-on training and experience she received in the tax clinic as “priceless.”
