This article describes the professors who teach taxation at American law schools as well as what courses comprise their tax curricula. The article is based on a 2001 survey of tax law professors as listed in the AALS Directory of Law Schools 2001-02. The article describes the demographic, educational and background of the tax law academy. The article also describes the range of tax courses offered at American law schools. Finally, the article analyzes the amount and type of scholarship produced by the tax law academy.

A companion article is in progress. The companion piece is based on the same survey and will describe the content and methodology of the basic income tax course.
