Meet Our 2023-2025 Tax Analysts Public Service Fellow

Leslie McClean is the 2023-2025 Tax Analysts Public Service Fellow.  Through the fellowship, Leslie will re-start the Low-Income Tax Clinic at DNA People’s Legal Services (“DNA”) which serves all of Coconino Country and portions of Navajo and Apache countries which include the Navajo and Hopi Nations, seven tribal nations in total. The LITC has been closed for seven years and the fellowship will allow DNA to resume tax controversy services and expand the staffing, training and tax education in this area.

What is the Tax Analysts Public Service Fellowship?

In response to a need for tax legal assistance for low-income taxpayers, to foster a greater interest in tax-related public service and to provide seasoned attorneys the opportunity to move into the public interest sector, the ABA Section of Taxation and Tax Analysts have developed a unique new fellowship to deepen the tax practice in organizations representing low-income taxpayers. The fellowship will build on the success of the Section’s fellowship for recent law school graduates, the Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship, established in 2008.

Applicants will be expected to identify and secure a position with a Sponsoring Organization before applying for the Tax Analysts Public Service Fellowship. All Fellowships must involve taxation or administration of tax law and must be with a public interest, non-profit organization, or a government entity. Each fellow is expected to make a two-year commitment to the Sponsoring Organization.
