Specifically, the Taxation of Cross-Border Investment program of the University of Miami School of Law benefits foreign attorneys who:
- Are practicing, or intend to practice, in or with Latin America in order to develop the niche market of structuring investments in and by Latin America.
- Are ready to delve into a more sophisticated tax practice and looking to understand enough U.S. tax law to work well with U.S. tax lawyers.
This unique offering makes sense as South Florida has become one of the world's leading centers of international tax planning and asset management, and Miami is a major financial capital and home to the largest concentration of international banks in the U.S.
The city has an exceptionally high number of lawyers representing clients with cross-border investments. We are able to bring in this top talent as adjuncts and have non-U.S. tax experts teach alongside U.S. tax lawyers to show the real-world dynamics of developing a structure that satisfies the business and legal demands of multiple jurisdictions. This way, students understand how international tax planning has to work in every country where their clients do business.
