NORMAN – University of Oklahoma College of Law Professor Jonathan B. Forman recently completed a month-long research fellowship in Sydney, Australia. Forman was recently awarded an Abe Greenbaum Fellowship by the Australian School of Taxation and Business at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Forman, an OU law faculty member since 1985, is the Alfred P. Murrah Professor of Law and the author of Making America Work (Urban Institute Press, 2006).
Professor Forman spent most of his fellowship time working with UNSW Senior Lecturer Gordon Mackenzie on a paper and speech entitled Pension Reform: What Can the United States and Australia Learn from Each Other? Forman also gave a speech for the UNSW Centre for Pension Studies on An American Perspective on Optimal Retirement Age.
In addition, Professor Forman spoke on Tax Reform in the United States at the University of Sydney School of Law and at the University of Queensland’s T.C. Beirne School of Law in Brisbane. Forman was also the keynote speaker for a program on “Work and Tax: Intersections and Conflicts” at the University of Melbourne Law School.
Of particular note, the Treasury of the Australian Government invited Professor Forman to present a seminar in Canberra on An American Perspective on Not-for-Profit Tax Concessions. Professor Forman also met with many other Australian Government officials including Australia’s Inspector-General of Taxation and senior executives in the Australian Taxation Office.
