Modules cover Business Taxation, International Taxation, EU Tax Law, VAT, Intellectual Property taxation, Taxation Principles and Policy and US Taxation. They are taught by leading academic and practitioners, with a strong practical emphasis.
You will have the opportunity to take part in the annual events organised by Queen Mary tax law academics, such as the London Alumni International Tax conference, the Avoir Fiscal Anniversary EU Tax Conference, the EU Tax Students Conference, Berlin Conference on EU and International Tax and the Summer Tax Programme, as well as workshops and seminars focusing on topical issues and current legislation. These events attract high profile practitioners, industry experts, international academics and government bodies, including the HMRC and the European Commission.
The LLM in Tax Law is highly regarded by firms looking for tax specialists.
The LLM in Tax Law provides a fast track to other professional qualifications. The programme will enable you to proceed to the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) examinations, without the preliminary stage of the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) examinations.
In addition, three modules on the LLM in Tax Law - International Tax Law, EU Tax Law and US International Taxation - can be used to prepare for Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT)exam papers and a dissertation on a tax topic can be submitted in lieu of one of the ADIT papers.
Tuition fee for the international students.)
European Economic Area tuition fee is applicable to the students from EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.)
The LLM is available to study full-time for one year or part-time for two years.
Each of the LLM programmes follows a common format: you will take 135 credits worth of taught modules (examined in May-June) and thereafter you work on a 15,000-word dissertation worth 45 credits (submitted mid August). You are required to balance your taught modules equally across the two teaching semesters – a full explanation of this process will be available during induction and before module selection.
What differs from programme to programme is the range of modules that you are required to choose from.
Important note: To join the programme, applicants must allow enough time to meet both the academic and English language (if applicable) entry requirements and allow enough time to organise a visa (if applicable).
The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, of at least 2.1 honours (or equivalent). Law graduates with 2.2 honours who also have other legal qualifications and/or substantial professional legal experience may also qualify.
Non-law graduates with a minimum second class honours degree, that have also obtained a Merit (or 60 per cent) in the Common Professional Examination (CPE) or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) recognised by the UK professional bodies, may also qualify. Non-law graduates may also be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience (of at least five years) in a legal area or an area directly related to their programme of study.
In all cases, a full online application is required in order for a fair assessment and decision to be made. Each application is considered on its merits and on sight of full application documents.
A full and detailed CV is required for all applications and is particularly relevant where professional experience needs to be considered.
No work experience is required.
