The School of Tax Law is a centre of excellence in research on and teaching of taxation. The LLM in Tax Law provides a comprehensive programme of study in tax law with a strong international and comparative focus. International taxation has grown in prominence and importance in recent years, and the LLM programme is designed to give students a thorough grounding in both substantive tax rules and tax policy and to equip them for future practice, whether they intend to enter or return to private practice, in-house employment or government service. The School of Tax Law offers a range of international, jurisdiction specific and subject specific modules, all of which are taught by leading academics and practitioners.
