I was drawn to tax law because it allows us to think about the law creatively in order to benefit society all over the world. Having worked at the Ministry of Finance, and having taught tax, I knew that advancing would require learning from top faculty in the field. That’s what drew me to Michigan Law. I’ve been amazed at how much I gained from this program: learning not only from experts in academia and in legal practice, but also from the different ways of thinking I found among my classmates, both American and international – and the close mentoring we received from our faculty was fantastic.

Unlike the general LLM​, the International Tax LLM has a specific set of requirements designed to ensure the highest-level educational and practical experience.

To obtain the International Tax LLM, students must complete a total of 24 credits in two terms of residence. More specifically, International Tax LLM students must take the following Law School courses:

Fall 2016 (required)

Fall 2016 (optional)

Winter 2017 (Required)

The remaining nine credits will be earned in tax classes chosen by the student, in approved classes in a related field, and by writing a tax law research paper under the supervision of one of the International Tax Program faculty.

​​​​​Students in the International Tax LLM Program can fulfill the program requirements as well as the required courses to sit for the New York Bar exam after graduation from the program. ​​​​
