Loyola’s boutique Tax LLM program is designed to support your goals.  With a full-time director, a breadth of courses in tax specialties, a part-time option, and evening classes, we work closely with you to design a program that will meet your personal career goals.

Loyola’s vast network becomes yours.  Our Tax alumni – nearly two decades’ worth – work in law firms, accounting firms, companies, and government agencies across Southern California.  They are engaged, supportive and eager to help Loyola students just like you.  Our faculty will help you connect.

Loyola’s top scholars are your teachers and mentors.  Our Tax faculty are nationally recognized experts and leaders in the field.  Using sophisticated case studies and problems, they train students in essential skills such as tax research and effectively communicating complex tax concepts to clients and decision-makers. They also help you navigate the Tax field with their strong connections and experience.

Loyola’s downtown Los Angeles location provides unparalleled access.  In addition to top-flight adjuncts and alumni, our location puts you within blocks of exceptional externship placements such as the IRS Office of the Chief Counsel, the U.S. Attorney Tax Division, the California Attorney General Business and Tax Division, and U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, among others. You can also gain access to these same adjuncts and alumni in our online Tax LLM program.

Loyola’s programs advance tax policy. As part of events such as Loyola’s Tax Policy Colloquium and Western Conference on Tax Exempt Organizations, top tax-law theorists, practitioners and Treasury Department officials regularly join students and faculty to discuss policy creation and interpretation.
