Walsh College Calls for Proposals for Third Annual Mark Solomon Tax Symposium for 2015

Walsh College is now accepting proposals for papers and presentations for its Third Annual Mark Solomon Tax Symposium to be held on October 27, 2015.

Four scholarly papers will be selected for presentation at the symposium as well as publication in the 2015 Mark R. Solomon Journal on Taxation.

Brief proposals on relevant papers must be submitted by Monday, June 8, 2015 Preference will be given to papers that challenge current thought, introduce provocative ideas, or present divergent sides of an issue.

“Papers may provide a new perspective on an old body of practice and policy or introduce nuances of changing social attitudes and mores in the practice of taxation,” said Daniel S. Hoops, J.D., LL.M, associate professor, Accounting and Taxation, and symposium chairman. “In the first two years of the Solomon Symposium, the topics have been really interesting and each speaker brought a unique perspective to the presentation,” he added.

The symposium is named in honor of the late professor of Taxation and Business Law and director of the Mark Solomon Tax Research Center at Walsh.

Solomon was the driving influence behind Walsh’s tax curriculum which emphasizes tax research. The Walsh College Library houses one of the most comprehensive tax collections in the country and is used as a resource by tax researchers throughout Michigan.

Participants have several reasons for participating in the Symposium, Hoops added. “You can establish industry presence, display intellectual capital to the profession, and demonstrate practical and academic expertise in this complicated, complex field. An affiliation with Walsh College can also bring prestige and pride.”

Collaborations are welcome. Finalists will be announced on Monday, June 15. Proposals may be submitted at or emailed to Professor Daniel Hoops ( by June 8.

The conference will qualify for CPE credit, and registration is now open. Tickets are $45 for Walsh College alumni; $20 for students and $90 for all others.
