Scholarship Information:Gary Randall is a Gonzaga legend. He received his B.A. and J.D. from the University of Idaho and began his legal career in Boise. From there he moved to the Internal Revenue Service where he served as trial counsel for five years. In 1970, Randall moved to Spokane and entered private practice. That same year he started teaching a tax course at Gonzaga Law School as an adjunct professor. It became apparent that Professor Randall had a remarkable ability to make the tax code understandable and even interesting to students. Randall joined the full time faculty in 1973 and spent the next 30 years educating students. With a disarmingly easy approach, Randall conveyed knowledge, instilled confidence, nurtured understanding and helped students develop expertise in a subject that most of them had approached with fear. In addition to his teaching, Randall also proved to be an effective mentor and advisor to many students, inspiring a great number of them to pursue LL.M. degrees in tax. Professor Randall has inspired countless Gonzaga law students to enter into the practice of tax law. Randall, noted for his easy going personality and tremendous teaching abilities, helped more than 20 students gain invaluable appointments as clerks on the United States Tax Court.
Although teaching was Randall’s first love, he is also an active member with the legal profession. He wrote many articles and was a popular speaker and presenter on the subject of tax. Additionally, while at Gonzaga, Randall founded the Law School’s most popular CLE program: Macs and Tax.
