Description

This programme is designed for lawyers with an economics background and economists with a legal orientation, who are interested in expanding their knowledge of international tax law.

The overall objective of this one-year advanced programme is to provide students with a thorough knowledge and with insights which will enable them to work in positions within the government and in the private sector that require high-level theoretical and operational knowledge of international and EC tax law. Topics covered focus on tax treaties, transfer pricing and EC tax law issues. In addition, you will learn the most important cross-border features of domestic statutory law and case law of the Unites States and, to a limited extent, of the Netherlands. You will also be made familiar with international planning techniques in the areas of both company taxation and estate taxation and planning. Also, in view of the differences among the students with regard to English drafting skills, specific attention is paid to the development of these skills, through courses and the final thesis. The programme offers a high level of training in all aspects of international and EC tax law in a demanding and comprehensive curriculum.
