For 12 years straight, New York Law Journal readers have rated NYLS’s LL.M. in Taxation Program No. 1 statewide among “Banking/Bankruptcy/Tax LL.M. Programs.”
The graduate tax program is open to qualified lawyers who hold a J.D. degree from an American Bar Association-accredited law school or an equivalent foreign law degree. All students complete a rigorous core curriculum and choose an area of concentration: Corporate Tax, Estate Planning, International Taxation, General Taxation, or Tax Litigation.
The program serves those engaged in every aspect of tax practice and every stage of career development—from established tax professionals seeking to broaden their knowledge of the field to business executives, real estate specialists, financial product designers and advisors, recent law school graduates, and others. The program culminates in a capstone, which provides students an opportunity to tackle sophisticated problems at the forefront of current tax practice under the guidance of practicing lawyers who are leaders in the field.
Many students pursue the graduate tax program part-time while working for major corporations, banks, insurance companies, and law firms of all sizes. NYLS also offers summer programs for those who wish to accelerate their study of law during the summer.
