LL.M. in Taxation
Each year, new and experienced lawyers choose the Graduate Tax Program at Temple University Beasley School of Law to deepen their understanding of complex taxation issues. Since 1973, the internationally renowned Tax Program has offered a Master of Laws in Taxation that provides candidates with a strong foundation in tax law as well as an opportunity to develop expertise beyond the level of study offered in J.D. programs. In addition, the program offers certificate programs in Estate Planning and in the Taxation of Employee Benefits. These certificate programs allow students to gain expertise in specific areas of interest without having to complete all of the LL.M. requirements.
J.D/LL.M. in Taxation
Temple Law School offers Temple J.D. students the unique opportunity to earn both a J.D. and LL.M. in Taxation with as little as one semester of study beyond the J.D. requirements. Students pay no additional tuition for LL.M. courses taken while in the J.D. program.
This is not a concurrent degree, but J.D. students can earn partial credit towards the LL.M.
A J.D./LL.M. student can complete up to 12 of the 24 credits required for the LL.M. while still enrolled in the J.D. program. Temple J.D. students should apply before graduation to be considered part of the J.D./LL.M. program.
