Centre for Tax Law
The Centre for Tax Law was established in 2000, with support from the Chartered Institute of Taxation, the International Fiscal Association Congress Trustees and KPMG, as a centre for research and teaching within the field of tax law. The Centre, which is located within the Law Faculty building, seeks to promote the study of the law of taxation as an intellectual as well as a practical discipline.
The Centre has three main activities:
- The first is the encouragement of tax law scholarship through the Cambridge Tax Law Series, published by the Cambridge University Press. Scholars interested in submitting ideas for publication are encouraged to contact the Centre in the first instance;
- The second is the organisation of a series of one day workshops, usually comparative, on matters of current concern. See the events section below for details;
- The third is to encourage work on the subject of tax history. The Centre organises a biennial series of conferences devoted to the history of tax law. This project brings together historians, lawyers, accountants, and tax experts;
