While many of you may be aware that Cumberland School of Law alumnus, Cordell Hull, is known as the Father of the United Nations, you may not know that he was also the “Father of the Federal Income Tax.” On Monday, February 25, Lawrence A. Zelenak, the Pamela B. Gann Professor of Law at Duke University School of Law, will be presenting “Figuring Out the Tax: Cordell Hull’s Legacy and Changes to the Federal Income Tax Over Time” as part of the 2019 Cordell Hull Speaker's Forum.

Attendees seeking one hour of CLE credit will enjoy access to the first chapter of Professor Zelenak's recently released book, Figuring Out the Tax: Congress, Treasury, and the Design of the Early Modern Income Tax, published as part of Cambridge University's Tax Law Series.

The event is open to the public.
