The University of Wyoming Low Income Taxpayer Clinic provides pro bono representation to income-eligible taxpayers in federal tax disputes. Under the direction of Professor Nicole Choi, the clinic generally is staffed by accounting master’s students working toward their CPA licensure.

This year they were joined by Josh Rogers, a law student from Evanston pursuing a joint JD/MBA degree. “So far, I am the only law student in the clinic,” says Rogers. He has interviewed clients, prepared exhibits, written correspondence with the IRS, and drafted tax court petitions, among other work. He says participating in the clinic has allowed him to work alongside graduate-level accounting and finance students while earning course credit toward his MBA. 

Rogers is a graduate of Sheridan College and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology at UW before applying to law school. After completing his 1L year last spring, he has taken business classes this academic year.
