Omri Marian, Professor of Law and the Academic Director of the Graduate Tax Program at The University of California, Irvine School of Law (UCI Law) will present a paper at the 2020 Global Tax Symposium on Thursday, Dec. 10. The virtual conference is an interdisciplinary mobile research platform on fundamental issues of international and comparative taxation and features select tax scholars and policy makers from around the world. This year Prof. Marian is the only presenter from the United States. 

“I am honored to be invited to present a paper in such an important venue, and have the opportunity to present my ideas to the worlds' leading tax policy makers -- from the OECD, UN, and the IMF,” said Prof. Marian.

Prof. Marian will present his paper “Taxing Data,” and lead a discussion with leading international tax experts, including Pascal Saint-Amans the Director of Center for Tax Policy at OECD.

The Global Tax Symposium was founded on the belief that mixing African, American, Asian-Pacific and European perspectives is beneficial to all of its participants – especially in the current political and economic global context. It also offers young researchers and more experienced scholars a forum in which five to six papers are discussed every year in different cities all over the world. Each paper is discussed by an interdisciplinary and international panel which includes leading tax academics, policymakers, practitioners and more.
