About

This highly-specialised European and International Tax Law programme from University of Luxembourg prepares graduates to become leaders in their respective areas of tax expertise – be that in a private law practice or accounting firm, in government administration, in the judiciary, or in academia.

Overview

Students will be prepared to master the general principles of tax law in order to be able to work with new or unfamiliar legal rules, and to successfully recognise issues arising in new taxing jurisdictions, in this ever-changing field.

Additionally, students will learn to make use of the extensive Luxembourg tax treaty network and gain first-hand exposure to real tax issues and the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union. This programme puts a particular emphasis on the interaction of tax treaty law with domestic tax law, as well as the effects of primary and secondary EU law on domestic tax rules.

During the European and International Tax Law programme from University of Luxembourg, students work on several case studies under the supervision of leading tax law firms and participate in research projects organised by the ATOZ Chair for European and International Taxation.  

Career opportunities 

Students will be prepared for employment opportunities in the legal tax and advisory sector, financial or law firms, national administrations, and European and international institutions. The LL.M. in European and International Tax Law also provides a springboard for further academic studies at PhD-level.
