During the past year, the Executive LL.M. in Taxation program has expanded globally; in order to make the program more flexible and available to more students, NYU Law petitioned the New York State Department of Education to eliminate a two-credit residency requirement, which has been part of the program since its inception in 2008. That had meant that students had to physically appear on campus and take two credits of class. But the Department of Education has now granted NYU Law's request, and the requirement has been completely eliminated, effective immediately and retroactively.
