Alabama Tax LLM--distance learning


Panache

Panache??!! Only the top programs like NYU, University of Florida, Georgetown, and the 2 or 3 others make the cut when interviewing with the IRS or those partners who have an LLM in Tax from those institututions. Hey bamaLLM, ask your professors who received their LLM in Tax from NYU, Georgetown, University of Florida, and I am sure many of them are adjunct, whether they or their firm would interview any of the students in your program. I wonder.

LLM Tax programs for the remainder of the law schools probably bring in as much cash as the US government printing more money. Take a look at this ABA article:

The job market for law graduates was relatively strong for 10 yearsso strong, in fact, that last year, 92 percent of legal grads found jobs in their field, the strongest showing in two decades.

This year, though, things are different, CNNMoney.com reports. For the first time in recent history, the job market is contracting. Thats bad news for the more than 150,000 students in law school.

Andrew Magdy is an example. He has a law degree from Michigan State and an LLM in taxation from Washington Universityand $150,000 in student loans, the CNN story says. The first payment is due this month.

Magdy told the publication he sent out about 300 resumes, but landed just one job interview. "Every day I send out resumés, both electronically and through the mail, and every day I receive responses that the law firms are not currently hiring," he said.

As I thought I made clear in my entry, I did not enroll in Alabama's LLM program with the intention of working at a top firm or for the IRS. I am a solo practitioner at a point in my career during which I want to improve my estate planning and corporate law skills by furthering my tax studies. The prestigious programs at NYU, Miami, Georgetown, or UF would not have suited my schedule or family. I am puzzled that my original entry seemed to set you off for some reason. I was simply trying to offer an honest assessment of the program in response to previous posts.
