Steven Dean’s scholarship and teaching focus on tax law. Tax Deregulation (N.Y.U. Law Review, 2011), for example, considered the surprising implications of enhancing taxpayer autonomy.  Professor Dean has also collaborated with Professor Dana Brakman Reiser on a number of projects, including Social Enterprise and the Law: Trust, Public Benefit and Capital Markets (Oxford University Press, forthcoming), exploring the role of the law in the growth of social enterprise.  Other work has considered unconventional solutions to longstanding problems such as tax havens, regulatory complexity and tax shelters.  Professor Dean is a member of the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association’s Tax Section.  Before joining the Brooklyn Law School faculty he worked as an associate at two global law firms.  He graduated from Yale Law School.
