Tax Law Extracurricular Activities

Students acquire additional knowledge and practice-ready skills through concentrated extracurricular activities that address Tax Law and related topics. The Business and Transactional Law Center and dynamic student associations plan and sponsor events and myriad opportunities for students to learn about modern day tax law trends from prominent practitioners.

The Tax and Estate Planning Association (TEPA) is a student-run organization. It enhances students' classroom education with experiential and service opportunities. For example, TEPA:

  • Invites speakers to campus and organizes events off campus with tax and estate planning practitioners
  • Organizes employment workshops to help members better prepare for and manage employment-search efforts
  • Hosts the annual graduate tax program information seminar
  • Coordinates Tax Days with tax professional in the regional markets and offers free tax preparation to qualifying individuals in the community.

Each year the Business and Transactional Law Center at Washburn University School of Law hosts a Distinguished Tax Law Visitor. Visitors are prominent tax professionals in one of the three branches of the federal government or accomplished tax lawyers. Visitors generally spend a day and half in residence at the law school meeting local practitioners and law school faculty; lecturing at the law school; speaking to local practitioners; and meeting informally with students.
