A Degree Tailored for Non-U.S. Lawyers

This degree program is ideal for students who expect international tax law to play an important role in their professional careers, have a solid foundation in their own domestic tax system, and have enough experience to bring their own questions to the program.

Specifically, the degree benefits foreign attorneys who:

  • Are practicing, or intend to practice, in or with Latin America in order to develop the niche market of structuring investments in and by Latin America.
  • Are ready to delve into a more sophisticated tax practice and looking to understand enough U.S. tax law to work well with U.S. tax lawyers.

Why Miami?

This unique offering makes sense as South Florida has become one of the world's leading centers of international tax planning and asset management, and Miami is a major financial capital and home to the largest concentration of international banks in the U.S.


"Doing the program online was an extra advantage, for it gave me the necessary flexibility a working attorney needs to have in order to keep his practice while improving his skills."
