USD School of Law Announces the Richard C. Pugh Lecture in Tax Law and Policy
San Diego (October 1, 2009) – The University of San Diego School of Law is pleased to announce the creation of the endowed Richard Crawford Pugh Lecture in Tax Law and Policy in honor of our Distinguished Professor of Law, Richard C. Pugh.
Before coming to USD, Pugh was a professor at Columbia Law School, a deputy assistant U.S. attorney general (Tax Division), and a partner at the international law firm of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton. In honor of his long and illustrious career, USD will invite as the annual Pugh Lecturer a distinguished practitioner, judge, or government official who has played a significant role in shaping U.S. and international tax policy.
The inaugural lecture will be given on April 16, 2010, by Eric Solomon, an outstanding practitioner and public servant who has made lasting contributions to tax policy as Treasury Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy and IRS Assistant Chief Counsel (Corporate). In September 2009, he rejoined the national tax practice of the international accounting firm of Ernst & Young in its Washington, D.C. office.
