Visiting Professor Beverly Moran, a noted expert in the field of tax law, has been named one of Boston College Law School’s Paulus Fellows. Moran, formerly of Vanderbilt Law School, most recently taught Taxation III (the highest level taxation class currently offered at BC Law), Partnership Tax, and Islamic Law at BC Law. She joins Professor Stephen Shay, current and ongoing Paulus Fellow, as beneficiary of the fellowship.
At Vanderbilt, Moran’s multi- and interdisciplinary work earned her kudos from students and colleagues alike; she has received a Fulbright Scholarship and grants from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, among others. Moran has contributed scholarship in the fields of international and comparative tax law, Islamic law, critical race theory, and labor law, in addition to serving as director of Vanderbilt’s LLM and Social Justice programs.
The Paulus Endowment for Tax Programs was established thanks to the generous donation of Robert and Kathy Paulus, who intended the gift to enrich the tax program at Boston College Law School. In addition to the Paulus Fellow professors, the endowment has funded countless symposia, a series of Tax Policy Workshops, and faculty research grants in the field of taxation law.
“Paulus Fellows are tax practitioners and academics who have made significant contributions to the field of tax policy and who can contribute to the intellectual environment of Boston College Law School,” according to Professor Jim Repetti. “Professor Moran easily meets these requirements,” he said in a ringing endorsement.
