About

The Estate Planning program of the University of Miami School of Law offers a unique combination of tax and non-tax estate planning courses unavailable elsewhere.

Overview

Choose From a Variety of Career Paths

The Estate Planning program of the University of Miami School of Law offers career development for students seeking successful and rewarding professions. With an Estate Planning LL.M. job opportunities can include:
  • Large law firm attorney
  • Boutique estate planning firm attorney
  • Bank or trust company officer
  • Internal Revenue Service position
  • Wealth manager at bank or investment house
  • In-house or independent attorney for public or private charity
  • Tax and probate litigator

How Does this Degree Differ from a Tax LL.M.?

The unique program prepares attorneys to deal with the tax implications of wealth transfers and with the related non-tax, investment and business succession planning issues. The breadth and depth of coverage of both the tax and non-tax aspects of individual and estate planning distinguishes the curriculum from traditional graduate tax programs. Tax LL.M. programs may offer a cluster of survey courses on estate planning, but cannot match the in-depth, practical focus of Miami Law’s spring semester classes which cover exclusively essential non-tax issues including fiduciary administration, asset protection, life insurance, investment planning, elder law, and probate.
