Course detail

- 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 lead 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.

- 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 prospects

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.

The result is that students are presented with a wide range of employment destinations when they leave; from positions at the European Central Bank, European Commission and UN to commercial roles as investment bank analysts, tax or public affairs advisers, as well as careers in the legal profession; accountancy; management consultancy; human rights organisations and other voluntary bodies; academia.
