Professor Camilla Watson of University of Georgia School of Law, speaking on a panel at the Southeast Association of Law Schools Conference (SEALS), discussed tax shelters and some of the recent criminal indictments related to tax shelters. She noted that they are "only as good as the ethics of those who put it together." In looking at what academics could do to assist to insure an ethical environment she suggested putting the course of professional responsibility in the first year and moving aspects of professional responsibility into other courses, particularly business courses.
