Suffolk University Law School is launching a new Tax LL.M. Program in May 2015 that will permit Suffolk students to earn J.D. and Tax LL.M. degrees in three years:
The National Jurist quotes Associate Dean Anthony Polito, Faculty Director of the Tax LL.M. Program: "Compared to the J.D. program, the only additional classes would be those in the summer session, so law students could graduate with J.D. and LL.M. degrees for about half the cost of attending a separate LL.M. program."
Suffolk joins other law schools like Boston University, Loyola-L.A. Northwestern, and Washington University that offer three-year J.D./Tax LL.M. programs. Other law schools (like Georgetown, NYU, and San Diego) offer seven-semester J.D./Tax LL.M. programs.
