Hope to get some replies. Thanks

Hi,

I am planning on doing a LLM in tax law for the academic year 2008/2009. I have applied for KCL and LSE. Got an offer from KCL, but haven't heard anything from LSE yet...

Will probably choose LSE over KCL.

Interesting, so LSE is the place to be! How long did you wait for your offer from KCL? I was pretty late with my application...
Congrats to your offer! Where you from?

KCL replied superfast. I submitted my application in early January and they replied within one week.

I don't think there is much difference between KCL and LSE. But i'm going for LSE's strong international reputation.

However, if you are interested in tax law, you should maybe consider Leiden and Vienna as well. I have heard they are good...

And by the way, I'm from Norway.

Thanks for the advice! I actually thought about Vienna. Really nice city and the programme sounds excellent, but since my mother tongue is German, this wouldn't help to improve my English so much. Leiden seems a bit expensive...
Now waiting on some answers.....
Do you think tax law programmes are popular? Most people seem to go for different programmes?

I see your point conserning the language. However, i am pretty sure that the LSE fee is higher than Leiden's.

I have no idea if LLM in tax is especially popular. But I guess someone has to learn tax law :)

I have lately considered int' tax programs on the continent as an alternative to a London LLM in tax. Do you know if the int' tax programs in Leiden, Vienna, European Tax College (Tilburg/Leuven) and Maastricht have a solid reputation among scholars and the big law firms compared to the tax programs at LSE and KCL?

Opportunities depend on your pre-LLM experience as well. If you plan to work in London - better to study there - you are closer for interviews with potential employers.
But at least two people from our class got London offers studying in Leiden now. Other prefer Luxembourg - busy place for international tax people as lot of Leiden alumni work there and you get in touch and get job offers. There are also recruiting here in Holland, but your Dutch language skills are very important for further integration on the workplace.

Starting from this year Leiden program organises career events (first due this April) to help students and companies meet each other.

I am going to study tax law at LSE - I had similar consideration as you, Thumy, concerning language improvement, why I would choose a law school in a english speaking country.

Got also admitted to NYU international tax law programme, which definitely has the best reputation, but even with the current dollar rate it's much more expensive than anything in Europe.

To bring up this discussion again, here is the deal: I am a tax lawyer in Brazil and want to go to an english-speaking country for my LLM. I have received offers from Georgetown, Florida and LSE. I am still waiting on NYU. So far, it seems to me that G-town has a more focused and practical LLM, while LSE would provide for a more general and abstract program. A year at LSE will cost much less than G-town or NYU. London is a great city, but the American way of life also makes my eyes shine. That will be a difficult decision for me... Anyone to help?

I went through the same dilemma and concluded the following: LSE, a great school though it is, offers a sort of education that we in LA -I`m from Argentina btw- are not use to: very practical and lacks of theory and principles. LSE is a great school for those who are into politics, finance, social studies, etc.
Among the US schools, I chose Gt because it is very well ranked and because DC is a great city -much better than any city in Florida and cheaper than NYC-.

NYU is by far the best Tax LLM program in the country. And Florida is top notch and much less expensive.

US News & World Report lists NYU, Fla, and GULC as the top three US Tax LLM programs, in that order. Fla is #2, GULC is #3.

I would focus on NYU and Fla if you come to the US. Good luck.

People,

I would like to study a top LLM in International Tax program in Europe (in English language).

It seems Leiden, Vienna and Maastricht are the 3 preeminent choices.

Tuition fees and geographical location are not important.

Are there any substantial differences in Faculty, lectures, classes, or teaching method among the 3?

Which degree is better valued/known by employers and HR?

Which has better job placement upon graduation in Big4, BigLaw, or Magic Circle?

Which degree is most recognized by the Academia for pursuing PhD?

Any input will be greatly appreciated!
