The LLM in Tax Law provides a comprehensive programme of study in tax law. It is designed to equip lawyers for the substantive, procedural and technical aspects of tax practice, and to expand and deepen the knowledge base of established practitioners, but no previous knowledge of taxation is required. 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 Chartered Tax Adviser examinations, without the preliminary stage of the Association of Taxation Technicians examinations. The EU Tax Law and International Tax Law modules will prepare you for the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT) of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Tax Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM modules.
All modules are 22.5 credits unless otherwise stated.
Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year and semesters listed can be subject to change. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed.
The updated module list below represents the result of our ongoing modularisation of the LLM which is intended to offer students greater flexibility and choice of module options.
