Experiential Opportunities - Tax

Tax-focused experiential coursework prepares students for tax practice. Our students build tax practice skills through the Business Tax Practicum, in which students address the business tax issues of clients of the Social Enterprise and Economic Empowerment Clinic, the Nonprofit Organizations Experiential Module, a simulation course in which students assist clients with a range of nonprofit issues, and UC Law SF’s Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic, a live-client experiential course through which taxpayers receive legal assistance with active tax controversies against the Internal Revenue Service.

In addition, our students get real-world tax experience through legal externships, where students serve in professional roles under the close supervision of practicing attorneys at approved governmental or nonprofit legal services organizations. Students have been externs at placements including the IRS Office of Chief Counsel, U.S. Attorney’s Office Tax Division, SF City Attorney’s Office Tax Division, and a Low Income Taxpayer Clinic.
