|LAW 651 - Federal Income Taxation I (Basic)|
Required course for all students during their second year. This required course is a study of the Federal Income Tax Code, regulations, and case law including the concepts of income, identification of the proper taxpayer deductions and credits in computing taxable income, allocation of tax items to taxable years, taxation of business entity, tax accounting, income taxation of trusts and estates, gains and losses from the disposition of property (ordinary versus capital gains and losses), and tax procedure. The course is designed to familiarize the student with the Federal Income Tax Code and regulations as well as the use thereof.
One of the Fall 2011 sections of the required Federal Income Tax course will be taught by Professor Crawford in an innovative format that includes a significant distance-learning component. The class will meet on Mondays at 11:00 a.m. in the traditional classroom setting. The class will not meet in-person for a second time during the week. Instead, students will have two additional hours of internet-based learning assignments that they may complete at their convenience before the following Monday’s class. The internet-based learning assignments will require students to listen to audio recordings, watch video recordings, participate in interactive discussion forums, complete on-line problems and assignments, for example. Students will have significant flexibility in scheduling the distance-learning component of the course. The on-line instruction will target a range of learning styles and allow students more control over the pace and timing of the instruction. It also will allow each student to “attend” approximately one-half of all classes at a time or times that fit best for that student’s schedule. The course coverage for this section will the same as the instructor’s that meet only in the traditional classroom setting. Students will be evaluated based on their participation and performance in on-line activities and assignments (30%) and on their performance on an in-class, open-book final exam (70%).
Students must have completed 28 hours of J.D. coursework prior to enrolling in this section. Ordinarily, only those part-time students who have completed the equivalent of one full-time academic year at the law school will be eligible to enroll in this section. ABA Standard 306 permits students to award up to 12 distance education credits (but no more than 4 credits per semester) toward the J.D. degree. This course will count as 2 traditional classroom credits and 2 distance education credits.
