Daniel Schneider's primary area of teaching interest and scholarship is taxation, although he also teaches bankruptcy and elder law in a clinical setting. He joined the faculty of the College of Law in 1984 and spent the seven years prior to that time in private practice in Columbus, Ohio, and New York City. He was also a research fellow at Yale Law School and a law clerk to Judge Joseph P. Kinneary of the Federal District Court of the Southern District of Ohio. He has written two books, Taxation of Dividends and Corporate Distributions (1995), and Federal Income Taxation of Corporate Reorganizations (1988), as well as other articles about taxation. His recent scholarship has been empirical research about how judges act in federal tax controversies and what might prompt them to act that way. He has been a visiting professor at University of Wisconsin, Washington University, University of Iowa, Florida State University, and New York Law School. He is a member of the American Law Institute.
