LLM in Taxation

USF’s LLM in Taxation provides a firm grounding in the major areas of taxation and prepares graduates for successful careers in tax law. 

USF Extension 280 X 225
The LLM in Taxation is offered at USF's downtown campus for both full- and part-time students. Special merit- and need-based financial aid packages are available.

The curriculum for this new program is both broad and deep. Expert full-time and adjunct faculty members—including E.L. Wiegand Distinguished Professor in Tax Daniel Lathrope, who is academic director of the program, and Professor Joshua Rosenberg, author of leading treatises in tax law—empower students with a comprehensive understanding of tax laws and the policies on which those laws rest so they are equipped with skills necessary for a career in the complex and always changing field of taxation. Courses range from corporate taxation and real estate taxation, to estate planning and international taxation, and more.

The program is conveniently located at USF’s Downtown Campus, in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district, so that working professionals can easily participate in the program. Both full- and part-time options are offered. Up to 12 JD transfer credits from an ABA-accredited law school may be accepted with approval from the academic director.  

Our students expand their knowledge of tax law and network with established professionals in the field. They graduate well-prepared for the private practice of tax law, in-house counsel positions, and positions in the tax departments of businesses or allied professions.
