The Frank & Rose Fogel Lecture

The Frank and Rose Fogel Lectureship was established in 1987 through a bequest from Frank Fogel (LAW ’23) to support public lectures on general legal topics. Since 2011, it has provided an opportunity for students to hear first-hand from leading tax policy-makers, tax administrators, and judges working on some of the most pressing tax issues of the day.
