For more than a quarter century, the LL.M. in Taxation has offered a comprehensive curriculum that provides instruction in both the substantive and procedural aspects of tax law. Courses range from the basics of personal and business income taxation to advanced problems in corporate and partnership taxation, estate and gift taxation, and state and local taxation. The full-time faculty is complimented by prominent and skilled adjunct faculty, balancing scholarly and practical approaches to the program.
A LLM in Taxation student must complete 24 semester hours of credit with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.50 in order to earn the degree. A summer term is counted as a semester for this purpose.
Courses must be selected from the LLM in Taxation course list. The LLM program may be completed on either a full- or part-time basis but must be completed within five year.
The American Bar Association mandates that no credit be given for taxation courses taken before a student is accepted into the LLM program Credits earned as part of a JD program do not count toward the LLM in Taxation.
