In the October 24, 2011, edition of Tax Analysts, Contributing Editor David Brunori opines on the course offerings, or lack thereof, when it comes to state and local tax programs at accredited law schools in his column "Not Enough Respect: State and Local Tax in Law Schools."

"If it were up to me," he writes, "teaching state and local tax law would be a prerequisite for being named to the top 25 law schools." However, only 80 of the 199 ABA-accredited law schools offer a course on state and local tax law. Georgetown University Law Center is mentioned as one of the few schools that does offer such a course, and its instructors include Sutherland SALT's very own Jeff Friedman.
