Grewal selected as inaugural Visiting Associate Professor of Law

<p><a href="…; target="_blank">Andy Grewal</a>, the College of Law's inaugural Visiting Associate Professor of Law, developed his interest in tax law while at the University of Michigan Law School.</p><separator></separator><p>&quot;Tax law was different from the first-year courses I had taken,&quot; he said. &quot;I liked the technical, statutory nature of it. There are as many unanswerable questions in tax as in any other area of the law, but I enjoyed the rigorous approach to finding a solution in the face of inescapable ambiguity.&quot;</p><separator></separator><p>Grewal first thought about an academic career while earning an LL.M. in taxation at the Georgetown University Law Center.</p><separator></separator><p>&quot;At Michigan, I was too busy trying to learn tax law to even think about teaching or publishing,&quot; Grewal said. &quot;But with the extensive help of my faculty mentor, Albert Lauber, producing original scholarship became feasible.&quot;</p><separator></separator><p>Grewal came to the College of Law from private practice with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher &amp; Flom in Washington, D.C., where he worked on the tax aspects of mergers, acquisitions and restructurings.</p><separator></separator><p>He will teach international, corporate and federal income taxation.</p><separator></separator><p>&quot;I greatly enjoyed working in private practice and learned more than I thought possible,&quot; he said. &quot;Anyone interested in a career in tax law would be lucky to spend time at a place like Skadden. But, at ASU, it's nice to be able to focus on the tax issues that I want to, as opposed to having my work dictated by client needs.&quot;</p><separator></separator><p>The Visiting Associate Professor of Law Program prepares recent law school graduates for careers in legal academia.<br /><span style="font-family: Tahoma; color: black; font-size: 9pt" lang="EN"></span></p><separator></separator><p><span style="font-family: Tahoma; color: black; font-size: 9pt" lang="EN">Judy Nichols, <a href=""><font color="#0000ff"></font></a><br />(480) 727-7895<br />Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law</span></p>
