Tax Law In France/Germany


Hi everyone,
I am aiming to take a postgraduate program in France or Germany that specify in Tax Law. Has anyone got some great suggestions?
In the future I would like to get qualified in France or Germany for tax law practise. What will it take to get qualified in either country? Will it be tough?

Where are you from? Where did you read your law degree and what type is it?

Not a chance to qualify in Germany or France with an LLM in Tax Law, unless you are European and have a European law degree.

In Germany, you have to study a 5 year German LLB to sit their Bar exam.

As opposed to Germany, France will probably let you sit the French Bar exam with an LLM, but your chances of passing without a French LLB are not very optimistic.

Besides, most if not all LLM in Tax programs in Germany and France are taught in either German or French.

France has an LLM in Tax taught in English by Cergy Pontoise but, IMHO, it is not top ranked as the ones offered by Vienna, Leuven or Leiden.

If you don't speak either German or French, I would pursue and LLM in Tax from either one of the latter schools, and go back home to practice in an International firm, with good salary expectations.

If you only intend to learn French and live the French experience, then Cergy Pontoise is a great option.

Regards,

What's affordable for you?

If by affordable you mean almost for free, I guess Luxembourg is by far your best option.

For an American student, probably all top European options are affordable: Leiden, Vienna, Leuven, etc. since they are all less than 20K USD. And good Tax LLMs in the US hover around 50K (at least NYU and Georgetown's).

As opposed to you, Luxembourg would not an option for most Americans, though, since the language level required is at least a B2/C1 for French.

But, if you already hold a Master's in ADR, why would you want a Master in Tax? It's a completely different area.

ADR has to do with commercial law, trade law, or even investment law. There is not much to do in ADR with international taxation, that I am aware of.
