Tax program was initiated about 4 or 5 years ago..(as far as I know) , so it is pretty good that we can reach rank no.4 so fast. ( I will check again whether this information is correct)

For the bar, you can actually study by yourself. Anyway, one of my tax friend took Legal Ethics.

The class size is about 30-40 ..

Last semester, I took "Tax Ethics, opinions, and penalties" and "Estate & Gift Taxation" . The first was not so tough as far as you use your human instinct whether what is wrong or right. This cause provides you the guide about how to be a tax lawyer in U.S. The class did not cover everything, but a guide. The Prof. who taught this class is so good in teaching and so funny. It's gonna be a relax class for you. The Estate&Gift provides you a lot of knowledge of how important tax planing for individuals is in the U.S.

This semester I am currently taking "Advance International Corporate Tax Transactions" . This class is taught by three excellent tax practioners in International tax areas. They are really doing international taxations so what they taught is quite practical and useful. This course is the advance combination of the "Advance Corporate Taxation" and "Internation Taxation". Hence, after you study these two classes, it will be very good if you will know the advance step of combining domestic and international things together. And if you want to practice in international areas, you should not avoid taking this class.

I also take " Entrepreneurship Laws". It is a Kellog Class for LLM student. I think it's so so. You might need other classes.

Anyway, the Prof. who taught international taxation of Fall 2005 was actually a visiting from George Washinton University. His name is "Sam Donaldson" . All students in my class agree that he was so so so good that some of us made a letter to have him as a full-time faculty, but nothing happens so far. Thus, I dont know who will teach you next semester. Also Prof. Yoder teaching Advance Int'l Taxation and Prof. Kwall from Loyola University , teaching Adv. Corporate tax are also the visitings . So who will teach next semester is still unknown in many required classes for me.

Personaly, first semester was quite tough to keep things together for me, 6 classes and big load of reading. However, nothing is harder than your attempt.

Hi again Mint! I am so glad you give answer to my questions! NU has such a great Tax program; however, from my standpoint it has a drawback that it is focused on domestic tax law. Though I want to stay in the US, Internationals are more marketable in international Tax rather than domestic tax law, and NU has few classes of International Law. Do you know if Board (or whoever) is thinking on readjust the program and introduce more international oriented classes like in Georgetown or NYU??
I would really appreciate your insights!
Best!

I dont think there is gonna be any change in the program next year except about the instructures. You are right! There are only 3 international tax classes at NU.

If you really want it. I suggest you to request for an interview.

Worchester apts are prety small. If you want to be around school you might want to look at the apts around school - some are really nice buildings within a couple of blocks...
