Correct me if I am wrong, but an LLM in Tax is a study of the Tax Code. So, there is really no need for a background in accounting, math or tax. If you have legal training, you should be able to understand the material.

I think your biggest hurdle will be the terminology and a few theories. I suggest you start reading the WSJ or Financial times or business books. I have done that and it has really increased my comprehension of accounting/finance. just understanding the terminology makes a huge difference.

Most classes and their respective exams will require you to be able to work with numbers in order to determine the tax consequences (tax liability, basis, etc) in proposed scenarios.

NYU LL.M. Int'l Tax '12

Hey Augusto, Thanks for replying.

I have to do some catching up with numbers, which I would love to. Before that I am trying to access if this whole thing would work out for me.

I have some specific questions. Are you a tax practitioner or Tax LL.M. grad yourself?
