Jeffrey H. Kahn, the Harry W. Walborsky Professor of Law, practiced tax law at the Chicago office of McDermott, Will & Emery. His scholarship focuses on the federal tax area and he is the author of several treatises.
“My research, scholarship and teaching are concentrated in the doctrinal area of federal income taxation. While income tax issues pervade throughout both commercial and noncommercial activities, they are of special significance to the conduct and planning of business transactions. For example, many corporate transactions are structured to accommodate tax objectives. The advanced tax courses Business Entity Taxation and International Taxation all concentrate on business transactions. Even the foundational tax course devotes a significant portion of its attention to commercial activities. Familiarity with the operation of the income tax system is essential to the successful conduct of a career in business law.”
