Goldburn P. Maynard Jr. is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law where he teaches courses on taxation, gratuitous transfers, and elder law. His research focuses on issues of wealth distribution and inequality, tax policy, and America’s aging population.
