It's my pleasure to announce that Beau Baez, a professor of law at Charlotte School of Law, is stepping into the faculty lounge to sit with us for a spell. His areas of teaching and research include business law, tax, torts, and legal history. Some of his recent publications include the book Tort Law in the United States (Aspen/Kluwer Law, 2010 and 2nd ed. 2014) and the articles "Taxing Internet Sales: Trying to Make a Two Thousand Year Old Jurisdiction Test Work in the Dot-Com Economy," 64 The Tax Lawyer (2011) and "Volunteers, Victims, and Vicarious Liability: Why Tort Law Should Recognize Altruism," 48 University of Louisville Law Review 221 (2009). Cribbing now from his webpage:
H. Beau Baez joined Charlotte School of Law from Liberty University School of Law where he was an Assistant Professor of Law. Baez was the director of the Tax Law program at Concord University School of Law and counsel for the Multistate Tax Commission. He received both a J.D. and a Master of Laws in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center and was a law clerk for the United States Attorney’s Office.
Baez is fluent in Spanish and has authored several international tax chapters in Compensation and Benefits Coordinator for the Research Institute of America. His articles have been published in State Tax Notes, Tax Notes Today, Tax Notes International, the Exempt Organization Tax Review, and Tax Base. His presentations and symposiums on various topics have been heard at Liberty Law School, Concord Law School, the National Lawyers Association Winter Conference, and the University of Richmond Second Annual State and Local Tax Institute, among others.
