The tax lectureship has been awarded to Dr Peter Harris, a lecturer from the University of Sydney for the last five years, who will take up his post, to be known as the ‘KPMG Lecturer in Tax Law’ in September this year.
In addition to his term in Australia, Harris, 36, has consulted to the OECD’s Committee on Fiscal Studies in Paris and to the International Monetary Fund’s legal department in Washington.
KPMG will also offer sponsorships to a number of students taking the new LLM courses as part of a package of initiatives designed to build on the resources and reputation of the Cambridge Tax Law Centre, part of the university’s law faculty.
Successful students applying for sponsorship to the centre will work at KPMG’s tax practice upon completion of the course.
