          Engaged Scholarship Update

          An update on the scholarly activities of our faculty.

          Articles in Print

          Chancellor and Dean Frank H. Wu wrote the Foreward to a special edition of the AABANY Law Review, a publication of the Asian American Bar Association of New York. The special edition collects five scripts for reenactments of important Asian-American legal proceedings, including one on The Murder of Vincent Chin, that Dean Wu co-authored.

          Professor Susan C. Morse has published “Corporate Tax Reform in Theory and Politics,” a book review of Martin Sullivan, Corporate Tax Reform:  Taxing Profits in the 21st Century.

          Jodi Short published an Economic Policy Vignette entitled “Robust Enforcement Should Complement Voluntary Regulation” on the website of the Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy.

          Forthcoming Articles

          Professor Susan C. Morse has five papers in process: “Ask for Help, Uncle Sam:  The Future of Global Tax Reporting” in the Villanova Law Review; a book review of Nigel Feetham, Tax Arbitrage in the Journal of the American Taxation Association; “A Corporate Offshore Excise Tax” in the North Carolina Law Review; “Startup, Ltd.:  Tax Planning and Initial Incorporation” in the Florida Tax Review; and “Narrative and Tax Compliance” in Finanz Archiv.

          Professor Joan Williams just received notice that the Special Issue of the Journal of Social Issues on The Flexibility Stigma, which grows out of a working group of the Center, has been accepted for publication. She co-authored the introductory essay.

          Speaking

          In August, Professor Christian E. Mammen presented his forthcoming article, “Patent Claim Construction as a Form of Legal Interpretation,” at the annual Intellectual Property Scholars’ Conference at Stanford.

          On September 21, Professor Susan C. Morse presented her paper “Narrative and Tax Compliance” at the University of Vienna conference on Tax Governance.  She considers the promise and pitfalls of using storytelling or advertising strategies to increase tax compliance by appealing to small-group norms.

          On September 26, Professor Susan C. Morse presented her paper “A Corporate Offshore Profits Excise Transition Tax” at the University of San Diego School of Law Tax Speaker Series.  She argues that if the U.S. adopts a “territorial” system for taxing U.S. multinational corporations, a transition tax of between 5 and 10 percent should be imposed on those firms’ untaxed offshore earnings and profits, without an allowance for foreign tax credits.

          On October 3, Professor Chimene Keitner participated in a teleforum sponsored by the Federalist Society on the human rights case Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co., currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

          Elections

          Professor Robin C. Feldman was elected to the American Law Institute.

          Professor Ugo Mattei was elected to the European Law Institute.
