I’ve been kicking around the idea of earning an LLM in taxation. However, I don’t want to leave Phoenix and so I’m researching what law schools offer online LLM’s. So far I’ve only found four schools that offer LLM’s in tax completely online; New York University, Boston University, University of Alabama, and Denver University.
Are there any schools that I’m missing? Any opinions about the value of an LLM in tax? Also, what’s BYU’s deal with not offering any LLM’s to Americans? It could be a real cash-cow for the school.
The National Jurist magazine recently reviewed 65 different law schools in the country to come up with their “Best Value” law schools. National Jurist looked at the cost of tuition, job placement, bar passage rates and school rankings. BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School came in second on the list. Congrats!
