Georgetown Law Offers Three Graduate Programs Online

April 14, 2014 —

Georgetown University Law Center is pleased to announce that three of its graduate programs, the Executive Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Taxation, the Certificate in International Taxation, and the Certificate in State and Local Taxation, will be offered online beginning fall semester 2014.

“Placing these programs online allows us to increase significantly access to legal education of the highest quality,” said Georgetown Law Dean William M. Treanor

The Executive LL.M. in Taxation offers students the same quality instruction and learning experience as Georgetown Law’s traditional LL.M. in taxation, but gives students the flexibility to complete the program online, on their own schedule.  The curriculum covers core subjects such as corporate taxation, partnership taxation, income tax accounting and the taxation of property transactions, as well as specialized courses offered as part of Georgetown Law’s certificate programs in International Taxation and State and Local Taxation.

The Certificate in International Taxation and the Certificate in State and Local Taxation consist of 10 academic credits that may be completed in conjunction with the Executive LL.M. degree program or on a stand-alone basis.

The Executive LL.M. program will consist of the same requirements as the traditional program – 24 credits for U.S.-trained attorneys and 20 credits for foreign-trained attorneys. Executive LL.M. students will be able to take the same classes as on-campus students.  The program differs from others of its kind in that it gives students the opportunity to take either a broad curriculum of core courses, or to more narrowly focus their studies by earning the Certificate in International Taxation or the Certificate in State and Local Taxation as part of their degree.
