Business Law Review Holds Spring Symposium Focused on Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

May 18, 2018

On April 2, American University Business Law Review (AUBLR) held its Spring 2018 Symposium, "The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Will it Stimulate Global and Domestic Markets?"

The event included partners from major law firms, including AUWCL alumnus Scott Levine, partner at Jones Day, and professors from AUWCL and AU's Kogod School of Business, and provided an informative and spirited discussion on the most significant reform of the United States tax code in thirty years.

The symposium, which featured panelists in the public and private sectors, specifically addressed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’s domestic business implications, its effect on international markets, and its impact on the domestic housing market. Panelists included, Greg Jenner, former assistant secretary of the United States Treasury and partner at Stoel Rives LLP; Kathy Orton, Washington Post reporter and web editor for the outlet's real estate section; and Manal Corwin, principal and national leader for International Tax at KPMG.

"I believe that this symposium was vital in expanding WCL's scope in the Washington D.C. legal and business community," said 3L Joshua Arons, symposium editor. "Further, this symposium discussed a highly relevant and controversial topic which will affect citizens of the United States and members of the global community."
