Networking & Professional Development: Taxation LL.M.

 
A major focus of the Tax LL.M. program and the Taxation of Cross-Border Investment LL.M. program is for students to gain a more intimate understanding of what to expect in practice and be "client-ready." To become apprised of recent legal and business developments in tax, top practicing attorneys teach relevant and timely courses, and practical learning is a large component of the program.

    Miami Law’s Career Development Office (CDO) offers comprehensive services and resources – online and on campus - to assists students with starting their careers or advancing their professional goals. Students have access to extensive job search databases and resources.  
     
    The Tax LL.M. Program has a liaison in the Career Development Office. This  experienced career advisor exclusively dedicated to students enrolled in the Tax LL.M. Program (pictured Debbie Rowe-Millwood, Special Advisor to Tax LL.M. and JD/MBA and Associate Director, Career Services) assists with their job searches and professional development needs, including one-on-one training on networking, resume writing and interviewing skills.

    • The American Bar Association
    • Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP)
    • Florida Bar Association
    • Greater Miami Tax Institute

    Tax Tuesdays Lecture Series

    Students in the Tax LLM Program attend weekly Tax Tuesday presentations throughout the academic year. These are lectures that provide a space for practitioners and students to present and discuss areas of practice or current issues in tax. In the fall semester, practitioners and representatives from law firms, solo offices and accounting firms speak to students about the type of work they do and how a Tax LL.M. has helped them in the careers.  Professional organizations discuss how membership and active participation can enhance legal careers.  Students work in groups to give presentations on current tax topics in the spring semester.
    Some past presenters have included:
    Steven Hagen, Harper Meyer
    Matthew Berman, Director International Tax Services, Deloitte Tax
    Alfonso Dulcey, Senior Tax Associate, KPMG and YIN (Young IFA Network)
