TAX DAY at Boalt – Hot Dogs, Beer, and Healthy Financial Futures – Thurs, March 3rd

Re-posted from the master calendar:

Calling all 3Ls and LLMs!

Worried about post-graduation loans? Want help planning your financial future? Like FREE hot dogs and beer? Then come to TAX DAY, a special financial planning event for Boalt 2011 Graduates.

In two simultaneous sessions, one each for students entering the public and private sectors, Berkeley’s best Tax Law and Policy professors, Robert Bartlett, Mark Gergen, Ann O’Leary, and Eric Talley, will explain concepts like “marginal rate,” “401(k),” and “how to file your tax returns properly so you can be Senate-confirmed someday.” Sigrid Allen and Dennis Tominaga, top-notch representatives from the Financial Aid Office will also be on hand to answer questions. And Dean Christopher Edley will add his remarks as well!

The Public Sector Session will be in Room 110, and will feature a discussion of public-interest and non-profit personal finances, and the ins and outs of LRAP and other programs (including CCRAA) designed to help public interest lawyers reduce their loan burdens.

The Private Sector Session will be in Room 100, and will explain what to expect for loan repayment on an associate’s salary, what your take-home pay will really be, and how to plan for a financially prudent future as a firm lawyer.

This is a unique opportunity to drink beer AND ask your tax and finance questions to the experts – don’t miss it!

Hot Dogs from Top Dog and beer (& non-alcoholic beverages) will be served in the Steinhart Courtyard from 4:30-5:30 pm.

The Tax Sessions will go from 5:30-6:30 pm in Rooms 100 and 110. For those interested in hearing the information in both sessions, they will each be recorded and the recordings will be made available on the Class Campaign website.
