Sara V. Spodick, director of the tax clinic at the Quinnipiac School of Law, has been elected a fellow of the American College of Tax Counsel.

The American College of Tax Counsel is a nonprofit professional association that recognizes tax lawyers in private practice, law school faculty and government for their excellence in tax practice and their contributions and commitment to the profession.

“I am extremely pleased and proud that Professor Spodick has received this recognition,” said School of Law Dean Jennifer Gerarda Brown. “Through her passionate and thoughtful advocacy for clients in our Low-Income Tax Clinic, she has improved the lives of her clients and also has served as a wonderful role model to students enrolled in the clinic. Now she will bring that same passionate and thoughtful approach to the American College of Tax Counsel as it pursues its mission to promote sound tax policy and improve the tax system.”

The American College of Tax Counsel strives to improve the tax system by elevating professional standards in the practice of tax law, stimulating skills development and knowledge through participation in continuing legal education programs and seminars, providing input into the development of tax laws, and facilitating the scholarly discussion and examination of tax policy. Fellows must be nominated by their peers for this honor, satisfy the established criteria and pass a screening process before being elected. The college, which is composed of approximately 800 fellows, is governed by a 19-member Board of Regents.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by my peers,” Spodick said. “I look forward to participating in the meaningful work of the American College of Tax Counsel.”

Spodick, who joined the law school in 2004, earned her law degree at Quinnipiac.
