Professor Richardson Bids Farewell After 22 Years at Grad Tax Program

Published: December 4th, 2006

Category: Feature, News

Twenty-two years ago Professor David Richardson came to the University of Florida tax program on a whim. In a telephone conversation with Professor Jack Freeland, Richardson not only learned of an opening for the position as director of the Graduate Tax Program, he realized applications were due the next day. He met the deadline and got the job. He served in that position for the next four years and remained a professor for the next 18.

During his time at UF, Richardson has been at the forefront of the Graduate Tax Program, now one of the most highly rated in the country. He helped found the law review that publishes articles dealing with significant issues of tax law and policy, and served as the faculty editor for two years after its inception. In 2005, Richardson co-authored a textbook on civil tax procedure that was published in the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. Richardson also serves on the board of directors of the Graduate Tax Series and expects there will be eight books in the series published by next August. Richardson, who is retiring this month, is fulfilled by the success of the LL.M. students.

“The thing that gives me the most satisfaction is that our students are in demand across the country, in private practice, as corporate counsel and in the government. Our graduates carry the college’s banner proudly and enhance the college’s reputation.”
