JD/LL.M. in Tax Meeting — Thurs., March 8, 1 PM (FH 216)

On THURS., MARCH 8th at 1:00 PM in FURMAN 216, the Graduate Tax Program will host a meeting for all J.D. students interested in learning about the J.D./LL.M in Taxation program and related scholarship opportunities.

At the meeting, we will discuss the following:

•       J.D./LL.M. IN TAXATION: Current NYU J.D. students can receive up to 12 credits of LL.M. advanced standing for certain tax courses taken at NYU School of Law and may qualify to obtain a Tax LL.M. with only one additional full-time semester of post-J.D. study.  NOTE:  For 3Ls who may be interested in this program, THE DEADLINE TO APPLY IS APRIL 2, 2012.

•       TAX POLICY FELLOWSHIP: A small number of 3L J.D./LL.M. in Taxation candidates will be selected to spend up to six months as interns at the U.S. Department of the Treasury or the Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation during Summer 2012 and Fall 2012.  A stipend is available, absent outside funding.  The fellows will complete the LL.M. in Taxation during the Spring 2013 semester and may receive a scholarship for their semester as LL.M. students.

•       TAX LAW REVIEW SCHOLARSHIP: The Tax Law Review (TLR), the premier law school journal for tax policy scholarship, often awards a one-half tuition, merit-based scholarship to a J.D./LL.M. student.  The winners of the TLR Scholarships serve as student editors, who do cite checking, proofreading, etc.  This involves a commitment of approximately 15 hours a week.  Students who are eligible to apply are current 2Ls interested in the J.D./LL.M. in Taxation program.  A student must have completed Income Taxation and priority will be given to a student who has taken an additional tax course(s).
