LLM in Internation Tax


rg2092
I am a law graduate from India and I am interested in pursuing LLM in International Taxation. I really liked the course in Leiden and Maastricht universities because of their course contents. However, I still have no clue about the job opportunities that I might have at the end of the course and wanted to know about the same. So, please tell me what are the job prospects for international students? (job prospects not just in Netherlands but any other European country as well)

I was facing the same problem - but have decided to apply to Maastricht. I spoke with a couple of graduates from Mexico, and they, despite being non-Europeans, did not have much trouble finding jobs with the Big 4 in Luxembourg, and one in Germany.

And the difference between "advanced" and "regular", is just in the title - check this out: https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/ITLP - this really changed my mind.

I read about a Tax LLM between Maastricht and the University of Aruba specialized on Latin America and Caribbean Tax Law... The program looks very interesting!

I suppose that depends on where you want to find a job. It would be doubtful if the Aruba programme will help you find a job in Europe.

hi Lillie,
Don't you think students from non-EU countries face the problem in finding jobs in Netherland, due to the language barrier (fluency in dutch or german)? or this is not true in case if somebody does LLM either in adv. international tax law from ITC Leiden or in international European tax law Maastricht university.

Hi Ambuja,

Non-EU nationals have a bit of a disadvantage, but I understand this is because of visa issues, and not so much because of language issues. I have asked a few people who graduated from Maastricht, who had to spend some time before they could get a job in Luxembourg or in the Netherlands. Most people in these countries speak English fluently, which is the business language for international businesses anyway. One thing I am sure of is that an adv. LLM does not give you any advantage over a regular LLM in international tax law.

Thanks Lillie for ur reply, I have applied to both the universities Leiden and Maastricht. Although Leiden is one of the best university for Law, but I am confused after reading Maastricht's International and European tax law programme, especially because this programme is taught using Problem-Based Learning (PBL). I am wondering if we do not consider the reputation/ranking, Maastricht's programme is better than Leiden's LLM in Adv International Tax Law? any advice?

Thanks!
