Myron C. Grauer
Professor Grauer will visit the Moritz College of Law during the Spring 2018 term from Capital University Law School where he is Professor of Law Emeritus. At Moritz he will teach Federal Income Taxation.
Professor Grauer earned his B.A. cum laude from the University of Vermont in 1971, his J.D. cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh in 1975, and his LL.M. from Yale Law School in 1980. From 1975 to 1979 he practiced law in both Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh. Prior to joining Capital’s faculty in 1990, he taught at the law schools of Southern Illinois University (1980-84) and the University of Cincinnati (1984-90). In the past he has served as Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Academic Director of the Graduate Law Programs, and Acting Associate Dean for the Graduate Law Programs at Capital, Chair of the Columbus Estate Planning Council, and a member of the Governmental Relations Committee of the Association of American Law Schools.
Professor Grauer’s early scholarship in the 1980s was in the field of Antitrust and Sports Law, and an article of his in the Michigan Law Review was quoted by Justice White in his U.S. Supreme Court dissent in NCAA v. Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma. However, his more recent work has focused on the role of the U.S. Supreme Court in formulating U.S. tax policy. A recent publication on this topic is Justice O’Connor’s Approach to Tax Cases: Could She Have Led the Court Toward a More Collaborative Role for the Judiciary in the Development of Tax Law?, 39 Ariz. St. L.J. 69-133 (2007). Additionally, Professor Grauer has been quoted on a couple of occasions by The Wall Street Journal with respect to tax issues.
