UCI Law Graduate Tax Program to Participate in Tax Attorney Recruiting Event


IRVINE, Calif. (Nov. 30, 2020) — Starting this year, the University of California, Irvine School of Law (UCI Law) Graduate Tax Program will be participating in the Tax Attorney Recruiting Event (TARE). The event, which will take place on March 4, 2021, brings together more than 150 graduate tax students from Tax LL.M. programs at Boston University School of Law, the University of Florida Levin College of Law, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law -- and now from UCI Law – allowing them to interview for positions with tax employers.

“We're excited to join this group of excellent tax programs from around the country and be a part of the nation's largest tax attorney recruiting event,” said Omri Marian, Academic Director of UCI Law’s Graduate Tax Program. “This will add another great opportunity for our students to successfully launch their careers as tax attorneys." 

In the past, UCI Law’s Graduate Tax Program has offered its own On-Campus Tax Interview Program/Tax Career Day (OCI) every October. This year’s Tax Career Day welcomed 15 firms and companies in a virtual capacity, allowing students the opportunity to interview for both externship positions as well as full time employment opportunities. By participating in TARE, however, UCI Law students will have the opportunity to meet more employers, and will be exposed to many more employment opportunities.

Through TARE, employers will have the opportunity to pre-screen applications and select candidates with whom they wish to interview. If you are an employer and are looking to participate in TARE, please visit the following website: http://www.the-tare.com/ -- law firms, accounting firms and government agencies are all welcome to participate.

In order to participate in TARE, please complete the short registration form -- you will receive confirmation within 3-5 business days. You can opt to conduct a resume collect or participate in the virtual job interview.
