Professor Tracy Kaye selected for a Fulbright Scholarship

In 2002, Professor Kaye was a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universitat in Freiburg, Germany

Seton Hall Law congratulates Professor Tracy Kaye, who has been selected for a J. William Fulbright research award. She will spend a semester at the University of Luxembourg where she will conduct research on tax transparency and tax evasion.

The Fulbright Scholarship Board comprises 12 Presidential appointees responsible for establishing worldwide policies for the Fulbright Program and for selection of Fulbright recipients. The grants are made possible through funds that are appropriated annually by the U.S. Congress and, in many cases, by contributions from partner countries and/or the private sector. Since its inception more than 60 years ago, approximately 300,000 Fulbrighters have participated in the Program; recipients of the Fulbright Scholarship have been awarded 43 Nobel prizes.

Professor Kaye specializes in federal income, international and comparative tax law, and has both taught tax law and conducted research internationally throughout her career. In 2013, as a Visiting Professor, she taught a course in international taxation at the Renmin University of China Law School. In 2012, Professor Kaye was selected as the PwC Visiting Professor at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and also taught a course on U.S. international taxation at their Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law. In 2007, Professor Kaye was a visiting scholar at the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property, Competition and Tax Law in Munich. Previously, she was a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universitat, Freiburg, Germany. Professor Kaye is also an Associate Member of the European Association of Tax Law Professors.

Professor Kaye serves as the Third Circuit Regent of the American College of Tax Counsel Board of Regents and as a member of the Academia Committee for the International Fiscal Association. At Seton Hall Law, she serves as faculty advisor to the Tax Law Society student organization. She is also the Co-Director of Seton Hall Law School’s Dean Acheson Legal Stage program, sponsored by the Court of Justice of the European Union and the American Embassy in Luxembourg, to promote understanding of European Union Law among American lawyers. She earned a B.S. in Accountancy, magna cum laude, at the University of Illinois; an M.S. in Taxation at DePaul University; and her J.D., cum laude, at Georgetown University Law Center.
