Dr. Weber heads the European Direct Tax Law practice at Loyens & Loeff, the largest European continental law firm.  He specializes in advising clients in European tax law proceedings for the Dutch courts, the European Court of Justice and foreign courts. Dr. Weber is a professor of European Corporate Tax Law and the director of the University of Amsterdam’s Centre for Tax Law. He is a deputy judge in the regional Court of Appeal of ‘s-Hertogenbosch and an editor of many books, such as: Taking the Financial Sector (IBFD), EU Income Tax Law: Issues for the Years Ahead (IBFD) and Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB): Selected Issues (Kluwer). 

“I met Dr. Weber last year during a Thomas Jefferson Tax Law Society career service event when he revealed how Holland is often the center of the world of international finance, and how tax law students can take advantage of often overlooked employment opportunities in this area,” explained the Tax Law Society’s Vice President of Operations Mark Hackmann (3L). “I was excited to obtain a generous sponsorship from Professor William Byrnes for the Tax Society to bring Dr. Weber back to campus to re-engage with our students.”

How did your professional experiences shape your approach to the classroom?

As a Senior Manager then Associate Director of Coopers & Lybrand, a three year associate to a renowned senior figure in the international tax industry, and undertaking a three year fellowship at the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation on the topic of transfer pricing.

In the nineties, I was a tax professor in South Africa during the time of its change to a full democracy with the corresponding upheavals. During those years, I experienced the challenges of classroom integration of cultures, languages, and economic backgrounds. Moreover, being a pioneer of online education in the field of tax during those years, I developed a pedagogical understanding of knowledge and expertise acquisition, and of mapping education processes to learning outcomes. …. .

I bring all of these experiences holistically to a “flipped” classroom, learner-centered approach.  ….
