I would advise you to read this text. I wrote it and published it on LinkedIn about two years ago, and it describes the 10 steps required for admission into the LL.M. program of a top Law School in the United States. I believe most of what I cover there can apply to European Law Schools.

Hey, applying for 2019/2020 from Canada. Can I enrol in the Tax LLM or am I only allowed to enrol in the International Tax LLM since I'm from a foreign jurisdiction? As you may be able to tell from the question, I'm hoping to practice in the US (NY) after the program. Thank you!

You should double-check that on the NYU Law website, but I have numerous friends/colleagues from previous years that do not have a U.S. J.D. and enrolled in the Graduate Tax Program (as opposed to the International Tax Program). So you should be fine.

Admissions go out on a rolling basis until late March/early April, I believe. Some people have already received admission notices.

Yeah, I was checking the NYU LLM 2019/2020 blog, seems that most of the decisions are for either the general LLMs or Domestic tax. I applied to the International Tax, so far no one has posted about it.

I was also awarded the Fulbright Scholarship, wonder if they have a different process. This is nerve-wracking!!!

Anyway thanks for the info!

Hi everyone! I submitted my application for the Executive Tax LLM program a few weeks ago and was wondering if anyone has an estimate of how long it takes to hear back. I would also appreciate any info on admissions criteria (it seems difficult to find regarding LLM programs). I am currently a 3L at a top 10 law school within the top 25% of my class (though my tax grades are all As and A-s). I have a job lined up in a tax group at a NYC firm for the Fall, but they want me to get my LLM part-time, and asked that I do the executive program in case I can't make it to class certain nights. I have two recommendations from tax professors at my school, and I am getting a tax paper published at a T14 school. Are my chances good for admission? Thank you!

Wait, what will happen if you don't get admitted? You wouldn't get the job with the tax group?

Hi Lucas, thanks for making yourself available for us.

I have a question I would like advise on. I did not get any scholarship from NYU for the International Tax Program but got 30% funding from Florida for same program. Where would you guys advise I go to in terms of work prospect in the US after graduation.

Thank you.
