"The LL.M. in Taxation is a challenging, fast-paced program that provided me with the technical skills and specialized knowledge to excel in the field of private client practice. The program offers students a range of courses across many different tax disciplines. This diversity allowed me to personalize my own schedule and focus on the areas of international tax and estate planning. Each of my professors was a leading expert and genuinely cared about my success. Their dedicated staff helped guide me to the right firm and adequately prepared me for the interviewing process."
