About the Graduate Tax Program:
Founded in 1945, Dean Arthur Vanderbilt saw an opportunity to stake a claim to tax as an emerging field of law. Until the 1940s, tax had been regarded as solely the work of accountants. Vanderbilt envisioned the nation’s first program devoted to the teaching of tax law and policy, and in the process of launching it he helped to elevate NYU School of Law from a small, regional, commuter law school to the top-10 US law school it is today. For 70 years since its founding, the Graduate Tax Program has been the world’s premier platform for launching tax law careers in the nation’s top law firms, accounting firms, multinational corporations, the US government and legal academia.
About the International Tax Program:
Founded in 1996, the International Tax Program is an important component of NYU School of Law’s commitment to legal education for a global economy. The program welcomes approximately 25 students with non-US law degrees each year, many of whom come to their studies at the Law School after gaining experience in government or private practice. NYU School of Law offers the largest and most varied selection of international tax courses available at any US law school, and the program requires advanced courses in US international taxation, tax treaties, international tax policy, tax planning for cross-broader transactions and comparative international tax policy.
