This advanced Master’s is a full-time programme of one year. The curriculum covers both the established framework of international tax law and emerging issues. A fundamental premise is that a proper understanding of this area of the law requires studying both the “big picture” and the technicalities. Optional courses allow you to give your study a regional focus.
Major themes of the programme include:
The programme also includes components that allow you to delve into selected issues in depth and, at the same time, develop your professional skills. Writing skills are particularly important and most of the course components conclude with a written exam requiring a number of short essays. You will also be required to write a final paper, giving you the opportunity to define and focus on your own research question. Throughout the programme attention will be paid to the structure of your written work as well as its content.
In the courses of our unique experiential learning programme, you apply your academic knowledge of the law and the skills you have learned by putting yourself in the shoes of a legal professional, in practice or in simulated situations. By reflecting on who you are as a lawyer, you work on your professional identity. The courses therefore build a bridge to society and the future professional field.
