No. You have to do law to join LLM. There is no other way.

No, not at this school. Check the website. You do not need a degree in law. You need a degree. Accounting , economics, law, these are all good.

FYI - you can view Maastricht University - International and European Tax Law Programme, it seems to be quite good and should have more of an international flavor

Vienne Girl is right u don´t need to have a LLB or JD to join a LLM program. However, if u read every single LLM´s profile, you´ll notice that the basic requirement for the admission is having a first law degree or equivalent; only a few programs exceptionally admit non-law graduates.

Now, since LLM in Tax Law is one of them (taxes are not exclusively a legal matter), particularly economists and accountants are welcome too. Nevertheless, I heard it´s really important for a non-law graduate to demonstrate some legal knowledge and, mainly, a good work experience in this field, to be considered by the admission councils don´t forget this is a master´s degree in law and, therefore, it´s mostly for lawyers.

Guys,

I am looking for a good LLM in International Tax taught in English but in a french/german language speaking country (so not interested in the US nor in England).

I'm looking into Leuven/Tilburg European tax College or the Vienna University, but I can't find any specialized rankings on the web.

Does anybody know which Tax School would be the best?

I think Vienna University of Economics and Lieden University are the best.

Thank you, Cashreyas. Vienna should be better, based on the price they charge for tuition (not as affordable as ECT's). However, price is not always a good guide.

I would just like to understand why would Vienna be better? The faculty maybe? The practical focus? The job opportunities after graduation?

Hi Barmenator,

I have just been accepted by Vienna and intend taking up the opportunity. Primarily, the faculty staff has already been very helpful, and the administration and structure are very organised. I also like the fact that exams are held every month so that one can move on. Apart from a very high reputation, I feel Vienna is best for me because the LL.M. goes into several national regimes, as well as giving an international and European outlook. Have a good look at the website as it details the course and faculty very well. As to your other questions, I intend doing well and finding out later, especially since I haven't heard any complaints to date.

Good Luck! :)


PS: To all,
would anyone kindly provide some details as to shared accommodation in Wien, Vienna (2010/11)? Any remarks as to best and worst places to stay?

It would be greatly appreciated as search is now on! :)

Kind Regards,
T.

Hi, Tattiana. Thank you for your input, since it is first hand.

I plan on applying for next year, since I still need to save a few bucks more. Would it be too much to ask for your email address, so I can contact you later on this or next year, and you can share your experiences at Vienna with me? It would be of great help!

I heard that Vienna is one of the most expensive cities in Europe. Good luck in finding reasonable accomodation. =)

Hi Barmenator,

Just sent you a PM.

It is expensive, but its in central Europe, safe and may boast of extensive culture....apart from the fact that, in my opinion, the course is one of the best. I've already started looking for accommodation, actually, to check out the cheapest places!

Thanks for the good luckwishes though!! ;)

Hi Tattiana, I have also been accepted to Vienna for the full time 2010/2011 LLM in International Tax Law. I am looking for accommodation in Vienna, but since I have never been there I don't know what are the best places to live. I have heard positive references from the course in WU and I am sure it will be a very good choice to study there. Let's try to share information about accommodation and other issues related to Vienna. Good luck and best regards!

Hi Vienna 2010 / Hi Tattiana,

Similarly to you, I was also admitted to the full time 2010/2011 LLM in International Tax Law in Vienna. I already contacted Ms. Ender-Rochowansky re accommodation hints and received in this respect few useful links. Nevertheless, I have not yet booked anything.

If you are interested in sharing some info, please send me a PM with your e-mail address. I will be glad to mail you, what I got.

Cheers.

Hi back :)

Already looking forward to meeting u in Sept! Re. Accommodation, I've also received some helpful hints from Ms.Ender after asking for some, and it seems that the best bet for secure accommodation and a student environment is applying with OeAD. There is a deposit that needs to be paid but if u don't agree with the accommodation suggested, they'll refund u. I think this is the best bet as private appts are around 1000 and a good hostel would provide safety, student rights and company. Try looking up their site, they have many different hostels, try choosing those nearest to WU, and then go on to choose the type of room you prefer.

If i were u, i'd do it soon since we're still early,
Best Regards :)

Hello to all participants of the Vienna Tax Law LLM next year.

The costs are about 600 Euros per month without electricity....if anyone of you is interested, just send me a post and I can send some pictures and further details.
