Advisory Board

The Advisory Committee consists of several of the leading tax practitioners in Georgia. They advise the clinic on a variety of issues. The committee participated in the establishment of the clinic, and members of the committee occasionally assist students with their assigned cases. Advisory Committee members also have taken part in classroom instruction and in efforts to raise financial support for the clinic.
