For the 2020 Testing Cycle, the Tax Law Institute entered into an Agreement with Ave Maria School of Law, located in Naples FL. The Ritz Carlton Naples (a Mediterranean Spa-like 5-star resort) was recommended as accommodations preferred by our guest Tax Court bar applicants who will test to be "Admitted to Practice, US Tax Court". The following was taken from an online promotion of the Ritz Carlton Naples -- "Make yourself at home in air-conditioned rooms featuring iPod docking stations and minibars. Your pillowtop bed comes with down comforters and Egyptian cotton sheets. Rooms have private furnished balconies. 42-inch LCD televisions with premium TV channels provide entertainment, with wired and wireless Internet access available for a surcharge. Private bathrooms with shower/tub combinations feature designer toiletries and hair dryers. Relax at the full-service spa, where you can enjoy massages, body treatments, and facials. You're sure to appreciate the recreational amenities, which include 2 outdoor swimming pools, outdoor tennis courts, and a 24-hour health club."
