The Melbourne Law Masters is a graduate law program of the highest quality, available to law and non-law graduates.

Melbourne Law School’s specialisation in international tax law enables tax professionals, academics and government officials from Australia or other countries to study international taxation in a global context, working side by side with colleagues from Australia and many other countries.

The international tax program is a globally recognised specialist tax qualification equipping graduates for the practice of taxation law in a rapidly changing economic world. The program is designed for those who plan careers in tax law, whether from Australia or internationally, in which international taxation will play a key role.

Students have a substantial selection of international and comparative tax subjects, combined with a choice from the range of subjects in the Law School’s broader tax and commercial law programs. All subjects are taught by leading international or Australian tax experts with significant reputations in the field of international tax.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Graduates of the Master of International Tax will:

  • Have an advanced and integrated understanding of the complex body of knowledge in the field of international tax including:
  • the rules that apply to residents deriving foreign source income and non-residents driving Australian source income
  • the design of tax systems in a global economy and the interaction of the tax rules of sovereign countries
  • the role of bi-lateral treaties between trading partners and the ability of one country to influence outcomes
  • the role of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and the United Nations in developing bi-lateral treaties
  • current debates on the applicability of existing corporate and international tax systems and proposed solutions
  • Have expert, specialised cognitive and technical skills that equip them to independently:
  • analyse, critically reflect on and synthesise complex information, concepts and theories in the field of international tax
  • research and apply such information, concepts and theories to the relevant body of knowledge and practice; and
  • interpret and transmit their knowledge, skills and ideas to specialist and non-specialist audiences
  • Apply their knowledge and skills to demonstrate autonomy, expert judgment, adaptability and responsibility as a practitioner and learner in the field of international tax.

  • Around 90% of subjects in the Melbourne Law Masters are offered on an intensive basis.
  • Semester-length subjects are offered throughout the semester.
  • Class sizes normally range from 20 to 30 students. All subjects have a quota. This ensures class sizes are suitable to provide an optimal learning environment.

Intensive subjects

Intensive subjects are ideal for busy professionals and provide an excellent opportunity to immerse in the subject content.

Subjects are typically taught over five days, either from Monday – Friday or Wednesday – Tuesday, excluding the weekend. This format enables students from interstate or overseas to fly to Melbourne to attend class.

Semester-length subjects

Semester-length subjects are generally taught for two hours in the evening each week during the semester.

Subject materials

Comprehensive reading materials are provided approximately four weeks prior to the commencement of an intensive class. It is expected that students undertake substantial reading before classes begin.

This Tax LLM will equip you with the legal framework and intellectual tools you need to understand cross-border tax. With a reputation for exceptional teaching and contemporary expertise you will find your intellectual and creative abilities are both challenged and developed by this demanding but intensely practical subject.

Description

On this LLM you will learn how tax works, how adding or subtracting a single step can change corporate transactions, or government policies, and determine whether they succeed or fail.

The King's specialist LLM in International Tax is led by Professor Jonathan Schwarz, practicing barrister, who is well recognised for his tax expertise. King's tax modules are open to those with or without previous tax experience but we expect all out students to be able to analyse legal and commercial concepts and then apply them to a complex factual matrix. You will need creativity, intellectual rigour and a willingness to work hard. We think the rewards are worth it.

Many of our students go on to enjoy successful employment with some of the world's leading firms and institutions. Some have made the decision to specialise in tax but not all. A tax module can be an enhancement to other studies, such as in commercial, financial or EU law for example.

Whatever your reasons for exploring International Tax, our LLM programme provides an excellent springboard for a wide range of careers, including traineeships with global partnerships, legal firms or placements with EU institutions.

Course purpose

This programme allows you to deepen or to broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject and assists your professional development by enhancing your problem-solving skills in a transnational context. Designed to maximise students' intellectual potential, it also keeps you grounded by drawing on the real world experiences of staff and other practitioners.

The LLM offers a sharpened focus on our key areas of excellence and a commitment to offer a premier programme and a world class student experience. Aimed at recent law graduates (or graduates of joint degrees with a significant law content) as well as established legal professionals who may have graduated a number of years ago, the programme is rigorous and demanding and requires serious commitment.

Course format and assessment

In the first and second semester you study your selection of taught modules (half and full). These are in most cases assessed in the third semester (May/June) by written examination, or in some cases by the submission of an assessed essay.

Dissertation or research essays must be submitted in September, after the May/June examinations.

Career destinations

In a competitive world we can give you the competitive edge to take your career to the next level. That’s why you’ll find our LLM programme is supplemented by opportunities to develop your skills and professional networks.

This degree builds on the School's long-standing reputation as the leading centre for the study of insurance in the UK.

The MSc in Risk Managment focuses on the problems that risk poses for corporations. It is particuarly appropriate for anyone interested in a career in risk, insurance, or general management.

After completing her undergraduate studies, Natalie Meech decided that she would like to specialise in risk management.

"Having completed some risk modules in my Industrial Economics degree, I decided that I wanted to specialise in risk management. Through the Masters I was exposed to real-world case studies that provided a good grounding for dealing with clients in my current job as a Corporate Tax Associate with Deloitte & Touche in Nottingham.

The Dissertation gave me the experience in managing a big project, and the structure of the masters means that you have to be very disciplined in managing a variety of tasks. These are useful skills in the workplace. I enjoyed my time at Nottingham and the MSc Risk Management has been of benefit to my role with Deloitte.

The global financial crisis has triggered greater interest in international finance law. It is broadly believed that multiple causal factors in various domains played their role in this worldwide social-economic crisis. These include international corporate governance, international banking regulation, and accounting and reporting schemes. This course will enable students to obtain a deeper understanding of these issues by studying a range of modules on various aspects of law and finance and will be attractive to those who want to specialise in law in this rapidly developing field. It will, in addition, focus on the policy issues surrounding financial regulation and will enable students to conduct research into these interdisciplinary areas.

This innovative programme meets the growing demand for professionals with financial and legal expertise by combining theory and practice to deliver one of the very few specialised law and finance postgraduate programmes in the UK.

The programme will enable you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the law, economics and finance governing international law and finance both in the UK, Europe and at a global level.

Whether your background is weighted more towards the legal or financial field, dedicated support ensures that you will gain the necessary analytical, financial and legal skills early in the programme to be able to succeed.

You will benefit from a compulsory programme in the week before the academic year begins to ensure that all students have the required finance and elementary legal skills prior to the start of teaching. This induction programme is delivered by the School of Law and Business School. The programme focuses on a range of areas including quantitative skills. This combines with support provided by the School of Law early in the programme to ensure that all students have the requisite detailed legal skills required for the programme and to understand the latest legal frameworks and legislation which apply to this rapidly moving sector. International students will have the opportunity for additional in-sessional language support.

Practical experience

As part of the programme you will have the opportunity to gain real hands-on experience, through a range of professional activities and advanced facilities designed to develop your practical skills.

For example, you will gain understanding of financial markets, whilst developing important professional skills, as part of a one-week trading simulation delivered in partnership with Amplify Trading. Using the same market simulations as companies such as HSBC, JPMorgan and Bank of America, you will have the opportunity to find out what it’s like to be a City trader operating a state-of-the-art trading desk, and to apply key financial theories to live market prices.

You will also have access to the Business School’s financial markets lab, equipped with Bloomberg terminals and a virtual trading platform, providing opportunities for skills development and research activity.

Course content

The compulsory modules studied will give you an excellent opportunity to:

  • explore corporate law, corporate finance law, corporate tax law and securities regulation
  • engage critically with domestic and international developments in financial law from practical, regulatory and policy perspectives
  • examine detailed knowledge of financial services and financial derivatives both from a theoretical and practical standpoint
  • understand how to analyse and present statistical data
