These tax-related certificates (with the exception of the International Taxation Certificate) are typically pursued by U.S.-educated students, although foreign-educated applicants may pursue them on a case-by-case basis. A basic course in Federal Income Taxation is required for admission to these certificates. In addition, applicants to the Estate Planning Certificate must have taken a course dealing with decedents' estates, trusts and estates or a similar topic during their J.D. program. Because the SALT courses presuppose a basic understanding of U.S. constitutional law, the SALT Certificate is generally open only to students who received their J.D. degree in the United States. However, foreign-educated applicants may apply for this Certificate if they have acquired the requisite background knowledge through educational or work experience.
The stand-alone State and Local Taxation Certificate (SALT) and International Taxation Certificate may be completed entirely via distance learning.
