Tax law is a daunting subject for many law students. It requires a firm grasp of the Internal Revenue Code provisions, the reasoning behind them, the way they interact, and the way courts have interpreted them. Students must also acquire a brand new vocabulary of tax terms.
For the first time, Oxford University Press equips students with an accessible guide to acing this most challenging of law school tests. In Federal Income Taxation: Model Problems and Outstanding Answers, Camilla E. Watson helps students demonstrate their knowledge of federal income tax law in the structured and sophisticated manner that professors expect on law school exams.
This book includes clear introductions to the major topics in tax law, provides hypothetical's similar to those that students can expect to see on an exam, and offers model answers to those hypothetical's. Professor Watson then gives students the opportunity to evaluate their own work with a comprehensive self-analysis section. This book prepares students by challenging them to use the law they learn in class while also explaining the best way to express an answer on law school exams.

Review quote

"Professor Watson has created an outstanding set of materials. The Hypotheticals are comprehensive yet concise, the Sample Essays are thoughtfully constructed, and the Tools for Self Assessment provide insights that are obviously the product of years of teaching experience. This book will serve as a useful supplement." --Mark Wright Cochran, Professor of Law, St. Mary's University School of Law

"A wonderful study aid for students, with sophisticated, highly nuanced problems in individual subject areas, model solutions, and references. More than an exam-prep tool, this is the kind of reference a student will want to have next to their casebook throughout the semester." --Norman Stein, Professor of Law, Earle Mack School of Law at Drexel University

"Camilla Watson has provided a very helpful guide for beginning tax students. With its extensive coverage of thirty-six subjects typically covered in the basic federal income tax course, the book gives students the opportunity to test their understanding through the vehicle of thoughtful problems with truly 'outstanding' sample answers. Diligent students will benefit enormously by reviewing each topic as they complete the material in their course." --Paul L. Caron, Charles Hartsock Professor of Law, University of Cincinnati College of Law

"The value of Federal Income Taxation is its discussion of basic tax topics using example fact situations. The examples make tax law approachable and offer a good stepping stone to more advanced texts." --The Colorado Lawyer
