Graduate Tax Law Program

To obtain the LL.M. degree, students must successfully complete 12 credits of required courses in the areas of Income Taxation, Corporate Taxation, Partnership Taxation, and Tax Practice and Procedure, and a sufficient number of elective courses to earn the 24 credits required. Guest students may earn up to eight credits.

Why an LL.M. In Tax Law?

The Graduate Tax Program offers busy professionals an opportunity to take courses to earn an LL.M. degree or as a guest taking a few credits without earning the degree. Classes can be taken at campuses located in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, Lansing, and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Online classes are also available.

The Graduate Tax Program's focus is to provide courses that give lawyers the knowledge and skills they need to accelerate their careers. To this end:

We keep the pulse of the marketplace to enhance the quality of the educational offerings and the career paths of the Program's graduates by maintaining open lines of communication with the state's top tax attorneys.
