Tax Law LLM - US or Europe?


I'm a Bolivian tax lawyer planning to do an LLM in international tax law in 2021/2022. I need some advice on which school is best for a career in tax law. Currently I'm considering NYU, Leiden, Amsterdam University, Maastrich, Tilburg, and Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration.

Which program would you recommend (from the ones that I mentioned or others)? I want to work in Bolivia after the LLM.

Thank you in advanced for your help!

Hi. Leiden University does no longer offer the International Tax LLM as it had differences with the International Tax Centre regarding transparency of finances and academic management. As a former student in one of those programs, I would recommend NYU, Maastricht, Amsterdam or Vienna.

Cheers :)

Usually you'd want to go with the strongest school you can get into, and think about each school's 'footprint' in your country. If one school has the stronger alumni network in Bolivia - you can check with your colleagues and look at LinkedIn - then go with this one.

I would imagine that NYU, given its location and its reputation, is probably the best choice, but it would pay to do a bit of research into each school's alumni network to get a clear sense of this.

Is NYU better known for US tax law or international tax law? Is it a good choice for either?

It's a great school in both regards. I would say that for international students, there are other options though, especially in Europe. But NYU is NYU, which is a great 'brand name' to have on your resume.
