Tax Law Section Curriculum

The Tax Section of the New York State Bar Association is pleased to welcome Section members and visitors. Michael Farber is the 2017 Chair of the [2,366] member Tax Section. Michael is a partner at Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP.  He regularly advises major investment banks, financial institutions and other clients in connection with their financial instruments, derivatives and capital markets activities.  The Tax Section engages in many activities, including testifying before Congress, holding semi-annual meetings and sponsoring Ad hoc conferences. Our primary function, however, is to comment on proposed legislation and proposed regulatory guidance at the federal, state and local levels. The Tax Section hosts events to provide tax lawyers who tend to be underrepresented at the senior levels of our profession the opportunity to meet with members of the Tax Section in a relaxed atmosphere to discuss career opportunities, what life as a tax partner at a law firm is really like or just to mingle.
