Law Student Writing Challenge
The Taxation Section is pleased to announce its inaugural Law Student Writing Challenge, open to full or part-time law students attending an ABA-accredited law school located in the State of Michigan. Students are asked to write a paper analyzing a tax-related issue from one of several categories. The Taxation Section has selected a list of questions in the following areas: (i) federal income taxation; (ii) state and local taxation; (iii) employee benefits; and (iv) estates and trusts and gift taxation.

Welcome From the Taxation Section Chair
I invite you to look through the pages of the Taxation Section's website to learn about all the wonderful activities and events hosted and sponsored by the Section. Through the website, the Section also offers members an interactive messaging tool for communicating directly with 1,200+ Section members to ask questions or share ideas related to state and federal tax administration and laws impacting taxpayers today. Throughout the year, a wealth of information is posted on the website, accessible by members only, including copies of all recently-issued Court of Claims Opinions from tax cases, access to the Section's new E-Newsletter called "Tax in the Great Lakes State," and electronic copies of the Section's publication, the Michigan Tax Lawyer. You are invited to become a member of the Section today in order to take full advantage of all member services by visiting http://connect.michbar.org/tax/communityresources/new-item.
Of particular interest to many of the Section's 1,200+ members are the activities of Section Committees:
- State & Local Tax
- Federal Income Tax
- Estates & Trusts
- Employee Benefits
- Young Tax Lawyers
Join a Committee today to stay current on events and communications among Committee members. And feel free to contact the Committee Chair about getting involved by helping organize an event, submitting an article to the Michigan Tax Lawyer, or submitting content to Tax in the Great Lakes State.
If you are interested in joining or increasing your involvement with the Taxation Section, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Program Facilitator of the Section, Mary Owiesny, at email@example.com.
I look forward to seeing you at future Taxation Section events.
Jackie J. Cook, Taxation Section Chair
