The LL.M. Program in “European Tax Law” has been created in 2006 to provide in-depth training for lawyers who are interested in expanding or deepening their expertise in the theory and practice of European Tax Law. Graduates will be able to skillfully apply European Tax Law in professional, corporate, consulting, and administrative environments. Based on several years of offering this program to German speaking tax professionals, the program is now held exclusively in English and features multiple distance-learning tools to enable candidates to combine their practice with postgraduate education.
Applicants will have graduated from law school or from a master’s program in a tax-related area or will expect to do so before the program commences. Alternatively, applicants with a strong experience in tax practice (e.g., with a law or accounting firm, in business, or with a tax administration) and an academic education equivalent to university studies are most welcome to apply.
The LL.M. program will start with February 2014 and will end with January 2015.
