The International Tax LLM Program is designed for a select group of professionals and academics in tax law who wish to complement their legal knowledge and experience with in-depth studies of U.S. and international tax law and policy.

The program is directed by Prof. Reuven S. Avi-Yonah and is taught by four professors from the Law School and two professors from U-M's Ross Business School, offering a full range of courses including basic tax, corporate tax, partnership tax, international tax, and public finance. In addition, tax scholars from other top U.S. law schools present cutting-edge work in our tax policy workshop.

The main difference between Michigan's program and similar programs at other law schools is its size: our selective program is designed for a small group of four to 10 outstanding students. Students receive more individual attention than in larger programs, allowing for close contact with faculty, as well as opportunities to interact with fellow students of different primary interests.

Since 2002, we have placed 43 graduates in desirable positions at top law and accounting firms in the United States and abroad. The graphic at right indicates the firms in which our graduates have been placed domestically.

The remaining 16 students are either students in the SJD program or are working in law or accounting firms or for tax administration in their home country.
