Suffolk University Law School is launching a master of laws (LLM) program in taxation that will allow students to receive an LLM and juris doctor (JD) in the same amount of time it takes to receive a JD.
Suffolk will be the first law school in New England to offer a joint degree in tax LLM. Compared to the JD program, the only additional time spent would be in an intensive 12-credit, 10-week summer program beginning May 2015. Students would also have to take eight credits of required tax courses as well as six credits of tax electives.
