Andy Grewal joined the Iowa faculty in 2011. Prior to joining Iowa, he was the inaugural visiting assistant professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
Professor Grewal became interested in tax law after his 1L year, when he decided that he wanted to do something as different as possible from the material he had learned in his first year.Ironically, although Professor Grewal became interested in tax because he believed it different from everything else, his scholarly interests relate to the intersections between tax and other areas of law. His scholarship on tax administration has formed the basis for taxpayer challenges to the Treasury's regulatory authority, including in cases pending before the D.C Circuit and in a federal district court.
