Luca, I don't know if you are still looking for LLM Int'l Tax, but I just completed my Leiden LLM in Int'l Business Law, and took a couple of electives from the tax programme. Great camaraderie, superb lecturers who were pratitioners from Amsterdam law & accountancy firms, and lots of fun. Good luck with your decision, esp. if you come to Holland. Andy

Sorry, I'm afraid I repeated Luca's comments by mistake. However, i wanted to recommend the Queen Mary UoLondon courses to him, but then I am biased as I have responsibility for those course.

In the US, I would say NYU Int'l Tax Program, Georgetown and Northwestern. Florida-Levine is also a great program, but it seems that they have lost a couple of key professors who joined the newly opened Northwestern Tax LLM (it has a couple of years). Besides, the campus is in small city 3 hours to the north of Orlando and in the middle of nowhere (at least when compared to NY, DC or Chicago).
One word of advice about the US programs: They can be really US-centered, for example, the courses about tax treaties are aimed to analyze the US Treasury Model Treaty and their own judicial precedents. The Treasury Model is a close resemblance of the OECD Model, but it is not identical and the way in which Americans construe its provisions may differ of the usual OECD interpretation of the text of the treaty. As another example, since some of those programs are designed for US lawyers who plan to specialize in taxation, they require to approve some courses that may not be useful for foreign students (e.g. tax procedures). However, in some cases (e.g. Georgetown) they waive some of those requirements for foreign students, thus allowing you to take more of the courses focused on intl taxation.
The solution is to check the courses that are available in each program (the same applies to European or Australian LLM) and see if you can build a schedule that will work for your objectives.
I have done some research about the tax LLM in Europe, and it seems that the most famous ones are Wienn, Leiden and London. All of them are conducted in English and the programs/courses looked interesting. By the way, if the person who wrote the previous posting is really the Prof. P. Baker you may be in your lucky day (if you apply to UoLondon he will probably be one of the persons deciding about your admission)
Good luck,

Starting this year, Maastricht offers an international tax program in English. You might want to consider this program, since Maastricht is considered to be the best university in the Netherlands by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. Like the other continental EU programs e.g. Leiden, Tilburg/Leuven and Vienna, the focus is one tax treaty and European tax law.

I participated in Nortwestern's Summer International Tax Program last summer. The experience was great. I had US International tax with Prof. Postlewaite and EC Law with several Queen Mary professors. Prof. Baker being one of them. I would recommend the program to anyone. I have applied to Northwestern's LLM after participating in the program because I was impressed with everybody involved.

I agree. I have heard many good things about the summer program and NWU´s Tax LLM program. If you want to enroll in a Tax LLM program, you cannot fo wrong if you choose any of the best ranked: NYU, Florida, GULS or NWU. NYU´s ITP is a very consolidated program, it is located in NY, and has wonderful professors; Florida launched an ITP this year, and they have McDaniel and Lokken; and GULC and NWU also have very good professors and great reputation in the job market.

Hi guys!
I just wanted to point out that I heart around that the Tax Program at Northwestern University is a little bit overrated. Think about it twice. The Tax program at NU was not even ranked 3 years ago. I am not fool and won't say that it is a bad program that climbed thanks to its powerful lobby. However, it is undeniable that they have visiting professors coming from Georgetown, Florida, NYU and so on. That means that professors go back and forth, and there is a meager permanent core of professors to build the program on. I do not want to be to harsh because NU is NU and all they do it is a high quality product but that does not imply to be ranked fourth.
Personally, I would prefer going to NYU, Georgetown, Florida or Harvard to Northwestern...at least as the tax program is concerned.
Good luck with your LLM's
