The Graduate Program in Taxation, which leads to an LL.M. degree in taxation, is designed for both full-time students and practicing attorneys who want to keep pace with developments in tax law and deepen their understanding of this field. The program, created and taught by full-time tax attorneys who are partners in major law firms and leaders of the national tax bar, takes a rigorous in-class approach to the problems that tax practitioners confront on a daily basis.
The program has benefited from significant contributions of time and resources by leading members of the tax bar. The Graduate Program in Taxation Advisory Board, which oversees the tax program, includes Chicago's most respected tax lawyers.
IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law also offers a combined degree program in taxation whereby a student can earn both the J.D. and LL.M. on an accelerated basis.
