Tax law and wealth management law are sophisticated areas of transactional practice. Our faculty teaching in these areas are nationally and internationally recognized for their expertise. They bring their research and authoritative perspective into the classroom, exposing students to cutting-edge issues and debates in these fields.
For students interested in practicing tax law or wealth management law, Basic Federal Income Taxation is a foundational course. With respect to wealth management, additional foundational courses are Trusts & Estates and Business Associations, and the course in Family Law is helpful.
Beyond the foundational courses, students will benefit from advanced courses in taxation, estate planning, corporate law, elder law, and nonprofit organizations, among others.
Parallel to Iowa Law’s course offerings, the Iowa Legal Clinic and Field Placement Program provide opportunities for experiential training. Students working in the clinic and at field placements may counsel clients on transactional matters, including tax and estate planning matters.
