LLM in Taxation: Certificate in International Tax Law

Annually ranked among the preeminent programs of its kind, the Master of Laws in Taxation program has the highest enrollment (more than 200 students) among the graduate programs at the Law Center. Georgetown ‘s Tax LL.M. program offers a unique combination of expert adjunct faculty and full-time tax faculty, one of the most extensive tax curricula taught anywhere, and the opportunity to experience Washington, DC, the nation’s center of tax policymaking, rulemaking, and publishing.

Students desiring to concentrate in a specific area of tax practice within the Tax LLM program may choose among four certificate programs. One of these certificate programs focuses on the increasingly important field of International Taxation. The Certificate in International Taxation consists of a dozen or more courses offered annually, all taught by a distinguished faculty, many affiliated with IIEL, comprised of full-time professors, leading practitioners from law firms, accounting firms and industry, as well as senior officials from the Congressional tax-writing committees, the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The curriculum covers all aspects or practice within the field, with courses that are both current and practical in their focus.

LLM in International Economic Law: Georgetown

The IIEL works with the Graduate school of Georgetown University Law Center to promote academic and professional opportunities for students interested in international economic law. The LL.M. degree in International Business and Economic Law (IBEL) is a flexible degree program designed for students interested in cross-border business activities and the regulatory regimes, national and international, that apply to them. Students pursuing this degree are free to design their own program of study by selecting from more than 70 courses, with rela­tively few constraints imposed by fixed course requirements. Students desiring a compre­hensive overview may select courses from various disciplines, such as corporate law, securities law, trade law, commercial law, and dispute resolution. Students desiring a more focused approach are free to concentrate their courses in one or more specialty areas. The IBEL degree thus affords students the opportunity to gain exposure to the fundamentals of various U.S. regulatory regimes while remaining free to explore in greater depth the international business that are of particular interest to them.
