NYU INTERNATIONAL TAX LLM - For foreigners??


It seems to me that the LLM Int'l tax program of NYU is designed to foreigners. However, it is not pretty clear if the program has a strict US approach of international taxation or if it is taught general international taxation (of course giving some US application to the theory).

In other words, does anybody with empirical knowlege have some tip about it? Is it worth to a foreign practitioner which wants to work not in the US to do an int'l tax LLM at NYU? Are there tax programs in US with broad approach, designed not to an US practitioner?

Many thanks in advance.

I would think if it's called an "International Tax" LLM then it probably teaches you... international tax.

This programme does have an US approach to international tax issues. If you do intend to practice law in the States or do not have a particular interest to us law this is not the programme for you.

There are some programs that are really recognised for being more "international ones", such as Leiden and Vienna. These programs do not focus on specific aspects of domestic taxation (the study does not focus on, for instance, dutch or austrian international taxation). That is, domestic rules on international field are not the aim of the program.

I know many persons who did LLM in Europe at these Unis, but I don't know persons who did LLM at NYU (int'l tax). I know guys from Georgetown and Northwestern which have told me that the programs there are really focused on US taxation. But at these places the LLM is of taxation, not int'l taxation...

If you check at NYU's website there is the description of some subjects from this "int'l course", but some of them expose the analysis of "section XXX of the code"... So, my question is just if someone who did, is doing or know a guy that has done or is doing the program can clarify this very important task for a non-US tax practioner who aims at doing a LLM in US (which does not focus on US domestic taxation).
