Overview

What you'll study

The International Tax Law LLM provides a comprehensive programme of study in tax law with a strong international and comparative focus. International taxation has grown in prominence and importance in recent years, and the LLM programme is designed to give students a thorough grounding in both substantive tax rules and tax policy and to equip them for future practice. We offer a range of international, jurisdiction specific and subject specific modules, all of which are taught by leading academics and practitioners.

You will be offered a varied selection of taught modules from which you can choose, enabling you to gear your qualification to set you on your desired career trajectory. You do not have to choose your modules until you have had the opportunity to learn about them in greater detail during your comprehensive induction period.

Please note that not all elective modules will be offered every year.

You will have access to an excellent series of lectures in Critical Thinking and Writing in Law to help you to improve your writing and research in law skills.
