St. Louis Chapter and Section on Taxation Co-Sponsor Tax Controversy Panel

On October 20, 2015, the St. Louis Chapter and the Section on Taxation co-sponsored a CLE program at the St. Louis University School of Law entitled “Litigating Tax Controversies: Views from the Bench, Government, and Bar.” The panel discussion, moderated by SLU Law Professor Kerry A. Ryan, featured insights from the Honorable Ronald L. Buch, United States Tax Court; Stephen Haller, Associate Area Counsel, IRS Office of Chief Counsel; James E. Crowe, Jr., Criminal Chief, U.S. Attorney’s Office (former Trial Attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, Tax Division); and David Curtin, Partner, Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP (also a former Trial Attorney with the DOJ Tax Division). Approximately 60 practitioners and law students attended the program, which was followed by a networking reception on the top floor atrium of the law school.

St. Louis Chapter Prepares Meal for Ronald McDonald House Families

On September 16, the St. Louis Chapter prepared a meal for families of the Ronald McDonald House of St. Louis. Many families travel far from home to St. Louis to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. St. Louis has three Ronald McDonald Houses, which provide a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. The Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. The houses allow families to face the weight of illness together and to focus on the health of their child, rather than grocery shopping, cleaning or cooking meals.
