LLM Taxation Specialization

The Tax specialization is designed to ensure that LL.M. students develop a broad understanding of key aspects of the United States system of taxation. Students learn to solve problems, and they develop an instinct for tax planning and the resolution of tax controversies. Through their courses, students solidify their knowledge of tax policy, taxation of foreign transactions, and taxation of non-profit organizations. Our Center on Tax Law allows LL.M. students to build their professional networks.
