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. Adjunct faculty drawn from the staffs of Congressional tax-writing committees, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the IRS, the United States Tax Court, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, as well as leading law and accounting firms, teach most of the graduate level courses. Full-time tax faculty oversee the curriculum and teach basic courses in the program, as well as advanced seminars, primarily in the J.D. Division. Courses and seminars at the J.D. level are open to LL.M. students once J.D. students have been accommodated. Graduate tax courses are offered in the Fall, Spring, and (to a limited extent) Summer terms.
Please note that all admissions criteria for this LL.M. are on the Graduate Admissions page.
