The Tax specialization is designed to ensure that MSL students develop a broad understanding of key aspects of the United States system of taxation. The course offerings enable students to deepen their understanding of specific tax disciplines, such as tax policy, international taxation, and taxation of non-profit organizations. Our Center on Tax Law allows MSL students to build their professional networks. The knowledge you gain will position you well for a new career or a career move in tax or business.
