UC Irvine Launches Tax LL.M.

Program to include a practical skills component

UC Irvine's School of Law has announced plans to launch a new LL.M. program in Tax Law.

According to the school, the new Graduate Tax Program will help students understand the new US tax law, which was enacted in 2017. The curriculum will cover a variety of topics, with mandatory courses such as Corporate Taxation, International Taxation, Partnership Taxation, and Tax Practice and Procedure.

In addition, the program will also include a practical skills component, where students will get real-world experience in tax law, and which can be completed through a tax externship or a tax clinic, for example.

UC Irvine's new LL.M. in Tax will begin in the fall of 2019, and applications will be open beginning this August. To apply for the program, students should have a JD from an ABA-accredited law school or have been awarded a law degree in their home country or are otherwise licensed to practice law.

International applicants must also demonstrate English proficiency through the IELTS or the TOEFL.
