The Tax LL.M. program is open to both U.S.-trained lawyers and to lawyers who received their legal training in foreign countries. To attain the degree, U.S.-trained students must complete 24 academic credits, 20 of which must be in tax courses.Foreign-trained students must complete 20 academic credits, 16 of which must be in tax courses.

Georgetown also offers an Executive LL.M. in Taxation program that is open to both U.S.-trained and foreign-trained attorneys, and can be completed entirely online. The Executive LL.M. offers students the same high-quality instruction and learning experience as the on-campus program, but allows them to attend class and complete assignments at times that are more convenient for them.
