When it comes to specialised LLM’s, a tax LLM has been one of the most popular options amongst law graduates across the world. In fact, a Tax LLM is one of the oldest specialised LLMs offered by US law schools; the one at NYU for instance, was established in 1945.
With an increasingly globalised world, and taxation structures, the number of foreign trained lawyers enrolling for a Tax LLM in the US has also increased.
This includes India, with an increasing number of Indian law graduates looking at the US Tax LLM. If you happen to be one of them, here are three first-person accounts which may help you make a more informed choice.
