Joining the Graduate Tax lineup this fall are
former New York University Tax Program Director
Paul R. McDaniel and Harvard Law School facul-
ty member Diane M. Ring. Both have expertise in
international taxation, and are expected to be
major players in development with Professor
Lawrence Lokken, Culverhouse Eminent Scholar
in Taxation of a LL.M. in International Tax
Law during the coming year.
"The proposed new degree reflects the
increasing importance of understanding and advis-
ing on international tax rules in a global economy
with multinational businesses, rapid capital flows,
U.S. clients with international dealings, and for-
eign clients with U.S. investments and businesses,"
Professor McDaniel, an expert in U.S. and
international tax law and first permanent holder of
the James J. Freeland Eminent Scholar Chair in
Taxation, was a visiting professor at UF in the 90s
and co-authored a number of books with UF Tax
Professor Marty McMahon. He earned his B.A.
from the University of Oklahoma; LL.B. (cum
laude) from Harvard Law School; and Honorary
Doctor of Laws

m, International Tax
helped pioneer the
concept of tax expenditures with the late Stanley
Surrey of Harvard, exploring these issues in the
groundbreaking book Tax Expenditures. He prac-
ticed in Oklahoma before joining the staff of
Surrey, then was assistant secretary for tax policy
at the U.S. Treasury Department, and remained in
government until the fall of 1970, when he joined
the BC law faculty. Following a previous visit to
NYU in 1986, Professor McDaniel joined the firm
Hill and Barlow, where he was a partner prior to
joining the NYU faculty in 1993.
"This was an exceptional opportunity for me
to join some of the best tax faculty in the world,"
said McDaniel. "I'm looking forward to what we
will be able to accomplish."
"It's a wonderful fit to have the James J.
Freeland Eminent Scholar Chair filled by someone
of Paul McDaniel's eminence," Friel said.
Associate Professor Diane Ring, whose pri-
mary interest is international tax law and relations
and taxation of financial instruments, was a
Harvard assistant professor of law for several
years, and national reporter for the 2004
Conference on Double Nontaxation for
International Fiscal Association. Prior to entering
teaching, she was an associate with Caplin &
Drysdale, Chartered, in Washington, D.C., work-
ing primarily in international tax and financial
products for planning, audit, legislative and regu-
latory matters. She clerked for Judge Jon O.
Newman, Federal Court of Appeals, Second
Circuit, New York, NY. Ring received her A.B.
(anthropology, summa cum laude, John Harvard
Scholar, Harvard College Scholar and Elizabeth
Carey Agassiz Scholar) and J.D. Magnaa cum
laude) from Harvard, where she was an editor on
the Harvard Law Review.
"Florida's commitment to a leadership role in
tax education and scholarship makes the law
school an exciting place to continue my work in
taxation," said Ring. "The interest here in the
global legal community mirrors my own focus on
the challenges facing a multi-jurisdictional tax
world. For example, my current work with the
International Fiscal Association on double nontax-
ation of income resonates well with the school's
international perspective and its desire to support
research of critical, pervasive legal problems."
"Professor Ring is a superb addition to our
faculty," Friel said. "We are very pleased to have
her with us." (Continued Page 5)

Graduate Tax Program faculty Dennis A.
Calfee, Patricia E. Dilley, Michael K. Friel, David
M. Hudson, Lawrence Lokken, Martin J.
McMahon Jr., Paul R. McDaniel, C. Douglas
Miller, Michael A. Oberst, David M. Richardson,
Diane M. Ring, and Steven J. Willis are authors
of some of the most widely used textbooks and
treatises, and have lectured at numerous confer-
ences and institutes in the United States and
abroad, occupied leadership positions in profes-
sional organizations and served as consultants to
the Internal Revenue Service, congressional com-
mittees and other major public and private entities.
"We have an extraordinary faculty," Friel con-
tinued. "They are committed and dedicated teach-
ers, and their books and articles heavily influence
the development of tax law, providing guidance to
practitioners and training to students.
"Our students are excellent. They have met
very high admission standards. They are talented
and extremely hard-working, and their participa-
tion makes the program better each year. Bringing
together such a faculty and such a student body
creates an unsurpassed educational experience."
Graduate Tax students come from law schools
and states throughout the nation, and increasingly
from other foreign countries. They have outstand-
ing academic credentials, and, in many cases, sig-
nificant professional experience. UF tax alumni
are known for their quality and competence not
only in law firms, but also in government agen-
cies, international accounting firms, corporations
and often as tax professors at other law schools.
More than 1,700 students have earned their
LL.M. in Tax from UF since the program began in
1974, and it was first in the nation to offer a
Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) specifically in
taxation. Roughly two years old, UF's S.J.D. pro-
gram requires innovative research and writing,
along with publication of a book or three law-
"The S.J.D. is intended principally for people
who are interested in teaching and scholarship,"
Friel said. "A number of universities nationwide
offer S.J.D.s, but UF is the first to offer an S.J.D.
specifically in taxation."
The program also publishes the faculty-edited
Florida Tax Review, one of the country's leading
tax journals. Its publication is aided by extensive
tax library holdings in the Richard B. Stephens
Tax Library. O

New Facilities Policy on Food, Drink & Smoking
New policies have been established regarding food
and drink in the Levin College of Law's new classrooms.
The rules are aimed at maintaining the beauty and
functionality of the facilities for everyone's use and
"We've now spent a week in our new classrooms
and I think we all agree they are wonderful. Because
it's all too easy to allow the quality of new buildings to
deteriorate, we must begin now to work together to
maintain these facilities," said Dean Robert Jerry.
"Indeed, I believe we owe this not only to those whose
leadership and generosity made this space possible, but
also to the generations of students, faculty and staff
who will use these facilities in the future. The following
initial policies with regard to building use are intended
to achieve that goal.
"As the year progresses, the Facilities Committee,
which will have representation from both students and
faculty, will have the opportunity to review these poli-
cies and may make recommendations about changing
them. Until that occurs, however, these policies govern
facilities use at the College of Law.
"I hope all of us can work together to set an exam-
ple for the rest of the campus in how to maintain and
care for our facilities. Thank you in advance for your
cooperation and support."
College of Law Building Policies
Food and Drinks:
* Food and drinks are not allowed in Levin College of
Law classrooms, except for the following beverages:
I) Water in clear plastic containers with tightly fit-
2) All other beverages if they are in containers with
twist-off securely-lidded tops from which the user
can drink the beverage without removing the lid
(examples are travel coffee mugs and sports bottles).
Examples of containers NOT permitted include soft
drink cans and bottles and coffee cups with flip-off
lids. Further examples of permissible and non-permis-
sible containers are available from the Legal
Information Center and Office of Student Affairs.
* With the restricted availability of other facilities in
the College of Law where food and drink may be con-
sumed, food and drinks will be allowed in classrooms
during school-sponsored events prior to Oct. I, 2004.

Groups Using Classrooms
* Groups that use law school facilities are responsible
for cleaning up any clutter or trash left by the organ-
ization and re-organizing the facility if furniture has
been moved. At the time a classroom or another law
school facility is reserved, the group may be charged
a deposit to ensure that the room is cleaned up.
Failure to clean up the space may result in the
organization being charged for the cost of cleanup
andlor the loss of the privilege of using College of
Signs, posters, banners, etc.
* Signs, posters, and similar forms of announcements
may not be posted anywhere in classrooms, in
alcoves leading to classrooms, or on walls, doors, or
columns, and are permitted only on approved bul-
letin boards. Individuals or groups are limited to a
single sign, poster, or similar form of announcement
per bulletin board. Announcements may not be writ-
ten on white boards in the classrooms.
* Banners are not permitted anywhere within the
