The Marvin A. Chirelstein Colloquium on Contemporary Issues in Law and Business brings leading members of the corporate bar, business and investment communities, judges and regulators to the law school to discuss emerging practice and regulatory issues. The aim of the colloquium is to provide a realistic sense of the varieties of business practice.
Marvin A. Chirelstein inspired numerous students to pursue careers in the business and tax fields while he was the William Nelson Cromwell Professor at the Law School from 1965-82. A master teacher and distinguished scholar, Chirelstein’s pathbreaking casebook with Victor Brudney on Corporate Finance (first ed. 1972) introduced modern finance into the law school business law curriculum and his guide to Federal Income Taxation, now in its 12th edition, continues to illuminate the arcane tax world to law students, for which all tax teachers are forever grateful.
