Michigan’s International Tax LLM program far surpassed my already high expectations: it was intense – the Socratic method was a challenge, but the faculty and administration were always helpful, - and superbly helpful for my tax law career.  The experience was rounded out by the fact that I got to study and hang out with LLMs and JDs with other specialties as well.
