Our online International Tax Law LLM is the same highly regarded programme that we offer on campus in the heart of legal London, adapted to your needs. This will enable you to study and work in a way that works best for you. This LLM will equip you with the legal framework and intellectual tools you need to understand the taxation of cross-border trade, investment and movement of people. You will find your intellectual and creative abilities are both challenged and developed by this demanding but intensely practical subject.

Course detail

Our aim is to provide you with the opportunity to obtain a systematic understanding of international tax law by reference to comparative national tax laws, international and European law as well as the role of international organisations such as the OECD and UN. We seek to develop critical awareness of and insights into the taxation of cross-border situations that concern internationally mobile individuals and multinational enterprises. We study how citizens, businesses and governments manage the challenges of taxation in the international context. This course allows you to deepen or to broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject and assists your professional development by enhancing your problem-solving skills in a transnational context. Designed to maximise students’ intellectual potential it also keeps you grounded by drawing on the real-world experiences of practitioner-teachers.
