Required LLM Courses

  • Corporate Tax
  • Partnership Tax
  • International Tax
  • Taxation of Property Transactions
  • Tax Practice and Penalties

* Note: Tax I (Fed. Income Tax) is a prerequisite to all graduate tax courses.  Full-time applicants should have taken Tax I as part of their JD curriculum.  Part-time applicants can enroll in Tax I as their initial class in the program, but the course will not count toward the required credit hours needed to graduate.  Foreign students admitted to the program on a full-time basis can audit Tax I in their first semester.


Elective Courses

  • Remaining credits may be fulfilled by a variety of upper-level taxation courses. Elective course choices are subject to approval by the Director of Tax Programs.
