Course content

The LLM International Tax Law is aimed at those considering a career in international tax consultancy or within in–house tax departments of multinational companies. It is also highly suitable for staff of foreign government finance ministries and tax authorities who wish to learn more about tax policy. The Stage 2 taught units can be used as preparation for an important qualification offered by the Chartered Institute of Tax, the Advanced Diploma in International Tax (Paper I, Principles), whilst the dissertation can be structured so as to be suitable for submission as a thesis in Paper II or Paper III of the same internationally recognised qualification.

The course draws on our academic excellence in international taxation and public law. It includes a wide range of tax and law modules that are focused on comparative, rather than on UK law, so applications from international students are encouraged. Tax issues are relevant in tax and non-tax areas alike, such as competition law and family law, within its remit of marriage, divorce and estates. International business transactions and the management of state entities are both subject to the ramifications of UK and international tax.
