"The Federal Income Taxation of Corporations, Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies and Their Owners, Part One" Free Download
The Federal Income Taxation of Corporations, Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies and Their Owners, 5th Edition, Part One, University Casebook Series, Foundation Press, 2015

JEFFREY L. KWALL, Loyola University Chicago School of Law

The law of the United States takes two fundamentally different approaches to taxing business income. The income of many corporations is taxed to the corporation when earned and again to the shareholders when corporate profits are distributed to them. In contrast, the income of most corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies is taxed only once, directly to the owners of the enterprise when the income is earned. Part One of this casebook provides an historical overview of the dramatically different effects of these alternative approaches to taxing business income. Part One also considers a proposal for taxing all enterprises in a uniform manner, regardless of their legal form.

This book, entitled How to Write Law Exams: IRAC Perfected, provides students of all levels with a detailed, comprehensive, and practical guide to success on law school exams. The text is dedicated entirely to exam writing and applies equally to all subject matters, making this guide an ideal supplement for every law school course. The material contained in this book can also be used after graduation to help students prepare for the bar examination.

Written by two law school professors with special expertise in both writing and substantive coursework, How to Write Law Exams differs from other writing guides in several ways. First, this book focuses on law school and bar exams rather than the kind of assignments seen in legal writing class. Therefore, this book helps students improve their grades in all of their substantive courses, not just in their first year legal writing class.

Second, this book provides readers with a proven and easy-to-implement means of maximizing points on a law school exam. Rather than repeating vague generalities about grammar and style or providing simple bullet-point lists as other writing guides do, this text breaks the well-known IRAC method of legal writing into comprehensible segments and gives students the tools needed to master their law exams.

Finally, How to Write Law Exams provides readers with detailed student-written examples of the IRAC method in action. Annotated with line-by-line critiques, these sample essays show readers exactly what can go wrong in a law school exam and how to fix those problems before they appear on a graded paper.

This document provides a brief introduction to How to Write Law Exams by featuring the book’s table of contents as well as a sample chapter outlining the “I? step of the IRAC analysis. As this material shows, the book is suitable for use not only by individual students but also by law professors looking for a way to teach legal analysis in their substantive courses or in academic success classes.

Combining in-depth analysis, easy-to-understand writing, and innovative design features, How to Write Law Exams: IRAC Perfected is the answer to every law student’s exam questions.

"Developing Your Professional Identity: Creating Your Inner Lawyer: (Chapter Three) The Attorney-Client Relationship" Free Download
Developing Your Professional Identity: Creating Your Inner Lawyer: (Chapter Three) The Attorney-Client Relationship, CreateSpace, November 2015


Who will I be as a lawyer? This is the most important question any law student can ask. Yet, in traditional legal education, this question rarely comes up. The purpose of this book is to change this.

Professional identity is a lawyer’s personal morality, values, decision-making process, and self-consciousness in relation to the practices of the legal profession (legal culture). It provides the framework that a lawyer uses to make all a lawyer’s decisions.

This book takes a variety of approaches to help you develop your professional identity. Chapter One asks you to take a close look at yourself by asking questions about your childhood, your college years, and who you are today. It is important to know who you are before you can fit into a profession. Chapters Two (Becoming a Self-Regulated Learner), Six (Overcoming Cognitive Biases), and Seven (Attorney Well-Being) give you the tools you will need to develop your professional identity. Chapter Two introduces you to “practical wisdom,? an important approach to understanding and solving ethical problems. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 deal with professional identity within certain topics – the attorney-client relationship, the lawyer and society, and attorney advertising and solicitation of clients. Chapter Eight presents the legal profession’s and society’s views on lawyers and the legal profession. Chapter Nine focuses on your role as a lawyer. It asks you what area of law you want to practice, how you will deal with clients, your place in the legal profession, standards of civility in the legal profession, and working with subordinates. Finally, Chapter Ten contains a variety of extended problems to help you further develop your professional identity.

American Indians are sorely underrepresented in the legal profession. But there is a greater need for more Native attorneys now than ever. By offering lay advocate, paralegal, or pre-law programs, Tribal Colleges and Universities can make a major difference.
