Professor Bryan T. Camp

Bryan is Professor of Law, Texas Tech University School of Law and admitted to practice in Virginia.

After earning his J.D. and M.A., Professor Camp clerked for the Honorable John P. Wiese of what is now called the Court for Federal Claims. He worked on tax, takings, and government contract cases. Then, as an Assistant County Attorney for Arlington, Virginia, he experienced the myriad delights of providing legal counsel to a local government, ranging from litigating various civil matters to practicing what he likes to call “transactional constitutional law.” Professor Camp left public service briefly to work as an associate in a small Washington D.C. firm. There he divided his time between commercial law, contract law, and estate planning.

After earning his LL.M., Professor Camp returned to public service as a Senior Docket Attorney in the IRS Office of Chief Counsel’s National Office in Washington, D.C. There he spent eight years delving into the details of subtitle F of the Internal Revenue Code and the subtleties of the Bankruptcy Code, dispensing advice to IRS field attorneys across the country and helping devise appropriate responses to adverse judicial opinions. In 1997 and 1998 Professor Camp was privileged to be a fly on the wall when Congress ground out the Internal Revenue Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (the RRA). He participated in the IRS efforts to affect that legislation. After the RRA’s enactment, Professor Camp led the regulatory response to one of the most complicated of the RRA provisions. The resulting proposed regulation was published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2001. During his tenure at the IRS Office of Chief Counsel, Professor Camp received numerous awards, the last one being the 2000 Attorney of the Year for the General Litigation Division.

Since joining Texas Tech, Professor Camp has lectured and written on bankruptcy law and has also written in the areas of tax law, statutory interpretation, constitutional law, and jurisprudence. He is the author of over 23 published articles and treatise chapters, plus numerous shorter works. Since June 2004 he has written 13 articles on tax administration law and policy for Tax Notes, the premier national publication devoted solely to tax issues. In addition, his long-standing and continuing interest in United States legal intellectual history and social history is reflected in his selection to participate in the 2003 Supreme Court Historical Society’s summer seminar and in scholarly presentations before the New York Historical Society and Haverford College.

Professor Camp is currently Chair of the Committee on Individual and Family Taxation of the American Bar Association’s Tax Section. He is frequently invited to present at CLE functions; currently he prepares materials for and presents at two to four CLE meetings per year.
