In the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic you will have opportunities to gain trial practice, litigation, and negotiation experience while representing clients before the IRS or Comptroller of Maryland. Often, you will work on matters where you will see the results of your efforts during the semester. You will experience what it is like to be a practicing attorney within a class setting and handle complex tax issues. Throughout the clinic you will develop the skills to effectively interact with clients, conduct interviews, and do research.
