Candidates for the LL.M. in Taxation degree must have a law degree and an academic record reflecting an ability to perform graduate work.

The Graduate Tax Admissions Committee of the Law School will review all applications for admission. The Committee will evaluate each candidate based on the likelihood of success in the program.

As the primary indicator of success in the program, the Committee will consider prior performance in academic and law school undertakings. However, the Committee will also take into account relevant practical experience. While the Law School does not usually require letters of recommendation and interviews for the Graduate Tax Program, the Committee may request them under appropriate circumstances.
