The LLM in Tax Law programme offers a comprehensive study of tax law including real estate, partnership, estates and trusts, corporate, and international tax law. Modules are designed to prepare lawyers for the substantive, procedural, and technical aspects of a tax practice while developing an in-depth understanding of the policies underlying tax laws.
The LLM in Tax gives an exemption from the Association of Tax Technicians (ATT) exam. It can also help you fulfil the eligibility requirements to take the exams of the Chartered Institute of Taxation to become a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA). The LLM Tax graduates just have to sit the Final CTA exam.
The LLM options - EU Tax Law, International Tax Law I and the LLM dissertation - may also be used to prepare for the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT).
The EU tax law and International Tax Law courses prepare students for the appropriate ADIT papers and the LLM dissertation can be used to fulfil the requirements of an ADIT international/EU tax dissertation.
Students must select a minimum of two modules from this list and do their compulsory dissertation in the field of Tax Law.
Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.
International Tax Law I
European Union Tax Law
The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, normally of at least upper-second class honours (or equivalent).
Non-law graduates may be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience that directly relates to specialist LLM taught courses.
* Non-law graduates with good honours, that have also obtained the equivalent of good honours in CPE and Bar Finals/Legal Practice examinations, or passed the solicitors qualifying examination, may qualify.
* Law graduates with high 2.2 honours and at least five years professional legal experience may also qualify.
English Language Requirements for the LLM
Students who submit a language score that does not meet the full language entry requirements of 7 overall 7 writing IELTS (or equivalent) will automatically be offered the appropriate pre-sessional language course as a condition of LLM entry if and where possible.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.
The School of Law is offering a total of twelve LLM scholarships. Of these twelve LLM scholarships, the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) will award three overseas fee scholarships and three home/EU fee scholarships and the Department of Law will award three overseas fee scholarships and three home/EU fee scholarships.
You must have an offer of study for the LLM before you apply for a scholarship. You should therefore apply for the LLM as early as possible. Students who have not completed their application by 1 March 2012 will not be considered for a scholarship.
