The University of Alabama School of Law is currently accepting applications for its online LL.M in Taxation program. This program allows practitioners to continue working and living where they are while pursuing further education.According to The University of Alabama School of Law, the law school is ranked in the top among publicly funded law schools, and the tax program is the most innovative in the country. The following is taken from a brochure for the program and explains how this LL.M. program is distinguished from other distance learning programs:
[I]nstruction is offered through cutting-edge technology that provides live lectures over the Internet, through video, audio, and chat. Live, real-time lectures permit students to ask questions as they arise and to interact with instructors and classmates exactly as they would in a classroom. The technology even permits the instructor to share desktop applications like Powerpoint or Excel with students during class. There’s also a white board that instructors and students can use to explain concepts. Other distance learning technologies like video- streams, podcasts, discussion boards, and email are used to enhance the educational experience.The next term begins August 2010. Classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (C.S.T.) for six semesters.
Applications are due by May 1, 2010.
