The University of Baltimore School of Law has hired the former head of the Department of Justice’s tax division to teach in its graduate tax program.
Caroline D. Ciraolo, now a partner and founder of Kostelanetz & Fink’s D.C. and Baltimore offices, will teach a course called “Investigation, Prosecution and Defense of Tax Crimes.”
“I’m thrilled that my former Justice Department colleague Caroline Ciraolo has joined the faculty of our School of Law’s Graduate Tax program,” said UB Law Dean Ronald Weich in a statement. “Students who enroll in this class will learn from someone who has prosecuted and defended criminal tax cases at the highest level. What an extraordinary opportunity.”
The class will look at the life cycle of a criminal tax case, warning signs that a civil tax case may be referred for criminal tax cases, legal privileges, potential defenses and other topics. The class will also address current IRS Criminal Investigation and U.S. Department of Justice priorities and current cases.
“It’s an honor be part of this important and highly relevant program at the University of Baltimore,” said Ciraolo said in a statement. “I’m excited to share my experience and lessons learned from years of practicing inside and outside of government, and I’m confident I’ll learn as much from the students as they will from me.”
