We have designed this programme to provide you with a broad and in-depth knowledge of EU Tax Law, giving you a firm grasp of key European case law and fundamental legal concepts. You will also become familiar with key scholars in the field of European Tax Law. At the same time, you will develop an insight into the relationships and interactions between different aspects and concepts of EU Tax Law. We guarantee that you will acquire the skills needed to translate EU Tax Law into practice in a commercial, public sector or judicial setting.
The programme’s lecturing staff are highly regarded for their teaching and research, and many also work as independent practitioners. This ensures that current developments in EU tax law are part of the programme. As a student you will benefit from their experience and network. In addition, you will also be able to network with other (international) tax law students.
The European Tax Law Advanced Studies programme is offered by the International Tax Institute, which is part of the Leiden Law School. The programme covers a full year, starting in August, en comprises nine courses. Each course is concluded by an exam.
Students are expected to actively participate in the classroom sessions and may be required to prepare oral and written presentations. We want to emphasise that the preparation work is quite demanding in terms of time. In order to cope with the requirements of the programme, you should give priority to your studies. For this reason, a part-time option is not offered.
This advanced master of laws programme is specifically aimed towards:
- professionals working in a commercial tax environment within the European Union;
- professionals working in European public sector positions, including Ministries of Finance, national tax authorities, EU Institutions and the judiciary;
- tax practitioners from outside the European Union who want to understand how Europe works in respect of taxation;
- academics and newly graduated talented students seeking to improve their understanding of EU tax law, for example in the context of doctoral research.
Within the Advanced Studies programme European Tax Law, we aim to provide students with the knowledge and insight to work in public and private sector positions that require high-level theoretical and operational knowledge of EU Tax Law. Our graduates pursue careers in:
- private tax practice;
- with multinational companies;
- the public sector (Ministry of Finance, tax administrations and occasionally the judiciary);
