Working with College of Business faculty, the law school has established this new practicum course to bring accounting and law students together in a law school clinic to provide inter-professional services to the community. The course carries two credits, one credit for thirteen hours of seminar meeting time, and one credit for forty hours of casework. Up to two additional credits can be earned with further casework. There is an urgent need in upstate New York for competent, specialized income tax law advice and tax return preparation for low income immigrants. We designed a course sequence to train students and address this widely unmet need in the region. Students will work with casework supervisors from three settings: private practice, the Legal Aid Society of Mid-New York, and Worker Justice Center of New York.
