Chodorow teaches summer course in Italy


July 17, 2009

Professor Adam Chodorow of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law spent part of the summer teaching a six-week course in Comparative Tax Policy at the Monash University Prato Centre near Florence, Italy.

Chodorow and his undergraduate students, who were from Australia and Israel, studied tax-policy issues and discussed tax laws in various countries, comparing them in terms of fairness, efficiency and complexity. The summer courses offered by Monash, a Melbourne, Australia,-based public university, are a "wonderful opportunity" for ASU law students, he says.

"It's something I would highly recommend to our students because of the chance to take a course from a foreign instructor and the interaction with foreign students who have an entirely different perspective on many of the common issues we face," Chodorow says. "In addition, many of the students are studying law with no intention of being lawyers. As a result, they approach the material differently."

Chodorow's research and teaching interests lie in tax, administrative and regulatory law. He teaches a variety of tax courses, as well as Law and the Regulatory State. His research focuses on religious taxation and a variety of contemporary tax issues, such as the taxability of virtual income.

He also is a member of the Academic Advisory Board of the Tannenwald Writing Competition and a member of the Professional Editorial Board for Jurimetrics , the ABA's Section of Science and Technology Law's journal.
