The LL.M. in Taxation is a one year, full time non-thesis degree, with a part-time option. Students in the LLM Tax program complete 30 credits, consisting of 16 required credits in tax law and policy courses, at least 8 elective credits in tax law and policy courses (up to 4 of which can be a directed research project supervised by a UBC Faculty member or can be taken through courses offered at another Faculty on approval by the Director of the Program and the other Faculty), and up to 6 elective credits in other law courses. For most full-time students, two academic terms plus an introductory intensive course taught in August will be required to the complete the course requirements.
The LLM Tax will provide graduates with a depth of knowledge and level of technical expertise in tax law beyond that which can be acquired in a basic law degree or other relevant disciplines. Mandatory courses will ensure that students have a solid foundation in core areas of tax law and practice, while optional courses will give students the ability to develop expertise in areas of interest.
