Apparantly they do - they're ranked #5. Was news to me. Anyone know if the program is new?

I found it.

just wonder why it's called "LLM concentration in Taxation, not "LLM in taxation"?

not sure about the distinction. Curious to know, however, how they climbed so quickly up in the ranks given that they haven't historically been known for their tax program. Perhaps just their general reputation precedes....

Because it's Harvard. No way I would waste my time doing that LLM. Go to NYU, Florida, or GTown (and possibly Miami if you want to do international work AND you get a free ride).

These rankings are kind of misleading - Michigan only takes international students. There should really be a separate listing for the Tax LLM for U.S. J.D. students.

I think you should note that the US News Rankings merely rank law schools that have tax programs. What you need to be looking at for LLM programs is a Graduate tax program ranking.

What do you mean by getting a free ride at Miami if you do the LLM in taxation program?

I mean that Miami's LLM wouldn't be worth doing unless it was FREE and you wanted to do international tax law.

Hi, I am new here and I would love to join you with the discussion. I am quite interested in the Tax Law program in University of San Diego, has anyone had information about it? Is it only open to JD students? Is there any Tax Law Program that are also open to foreign students besides Michigan?
Thanks!

I guess all the LLM programs mentioned in this forum accept foreign students.

I am an international student and I already applied for LLM with concentration in Taxation at HLS; I can see that their program is ranked # 5 and obviously I think Florida and NU are more prestiged in the tax law field, but what about the overall reputation of Harvard? doesn`t this fact attract potential employers for international tax law positions?

Harvard does not have a tax LLM program, neither does UCLA, UCLA's LLM program is for international students only. My guess, is that these schools JD tax concentration is good enough to rank them highly even without getting an LLM from their school. Which makes sense because they are both top schools.

The HLS LLM progam has a Tax concentration, albeit not a full-blown Tax LLM (although I'm not sure what the practical difference might be). Not as large as NYU's I would think, though.
