NYU Domestic Tax Decisions

One of my professors mentioned Joshua Blank, who he seemed to say was pretty well respected, at least in terms of recent publication. He is teaching Corp Tax I&II this fall; Schmolka is teaching it this spring. Unfortunately, it seems like a class you cannot really hold off on if you want to focus on business law.

And then there is Victor Flesicher who has the second most downloaded "tax" journal article of all-time (which I am sure you've read), although I do believe he is a visiting professor from Colorado, so he does not really count.

Triguy,

Did you take Timing Issues? If so, was it worth it for purposes of understanding the material in other classes (ie, Corp I&II, Int'l I&II, and the advanced classes)? NYU seems to promote Timing, but there are so many other classes that seem way more interesting.

Yes, you should take either Timing or Taxation of Property Transactions (but not both because they overlap). They cover a lot of things that frequently come up in other classes: installment sales, OID, related party rules, 1231 property, attribution, depreciation/amortization rules, etc. Even if you are familiar with these ideas, I promise you that you have not learned them in the detail they will be taught. The only class that is a waste of time is policy because it has no bearing on the practice of law unless you want to go into academia.

Thanks, I was going to take Taxation of Property Transactions. Good to know about the overlap. which did you take?

How do people feel about the NYU Online Tax LLM program? Especially for people on the West Coast, would it make better sense to take the NYU Online program rather than going to Loyola or USD?
