The Master of Laws (LLM) in Taxation program at Washington University School of Law offers a rigorous course of study in the field of tax law. The program — for which an online application process is available — provides comprehensive and specialized training to lawyers and law school graduates who plan to specialize in tax. Our full-time faculty and leading practitioners in the field offer specialized practical training and individualized attention in small classes (typically fewer than 10 students) that offer our unique tax curriculum.

St. Louis offers all of the resources of a large city while retaining a strong sense of community and an emphasis on neighborhoods.

The many area law firms come in all sizes and specialize in all fields of tax law.
