New International Tax LL.M. Program in the US

Over the past 30 years, the Graduate Tax Program at the University of Florida Levin College of Law has established itself as one of the premier tax programs throughout the United States (see rankings below). The faculty of the College of Law have now proposed to establish a new degree within the Graduate Tax Program, the LL.M. in International Taxation, starting in August 2005. The curriculum for the LL.M. in International Taxation will provide extensive and in-depth study of major problems and issues in international taxation and will include courses and coverage in:

  • U.S. International Taxation (Parts I & II) • Tax Treaties
  • International Tax Policy • European Taxation
  • International Tax Planning • Comparative Taxation
  • International Tax Seminars • Transfer Pricing

According to the U.S. News & World Report 2004-05 Graduate Tax Program Rankings, the US Graduate Tax Programs are ranked as follows:
1 New York University
2 Florida
3 Georgetown
4 Northwestern
5 Miami
6 Boston University, San Diego
8 University of Washington
9 Loyola-L.A
10 Denver , SMU and Villanova

For foreign students wanting to study international tax in the US the story is a bit different. The fact is that the majority of the programs are exclusivly US oreintated makes the choice harder for students educated outside the U.S.. I should mention that NYU, Georgetown and Michigan have special LL.M. programs for foreign students. The new program in Florida follows this track, to adapt the US graduate tax program to foreign students willing to study in the US.
