LLM in Tax Law at The John Marshall Law School for practicing lawyers is one of the oldest programs of its kind in the nation, and provides a practical grounding in all major areas of taxation. The program stresses a transactional approach and deals with actual problems encountered in the practice of tax law.
As a result of continuous input from our faculty and advisory board, our focused, relevant curriculum emphasizes the identification of issues and problems, and instills the ability to apply the law creatively to meet the client's goals. Courses are taught by experienced tax practitioners who are engaged in the cutting-edge aspects of their specific fields of tax law expertise, as well as current and former members of the IRS's Office of Chief Counsel.
Our program attracts recent law graduates and practicing attorneys who desire a better understanding of tax law. To accommodate the diverse needs and experiences of degree candidates, the program may be pursued full-time and completed over two semesters or completed part-time in less than five years. Classes are held in the late afternoon and evenings, and on Saturdays. One-week accelerated courses are also offered during the academic year.
