The University of Southern California Gould School of Law announced on Friday that it is starting a graduate tax program:
Some of the nation’s most esteemed tax scholars teach at USC Law, creating an ideal setting for a new tax program, [USC Law Dean Robert] Rasmussen added. “It only makes sense that USC Law offers students the opportunity to study with exceptional professors and earn a graduate-level Tax LL.M.,” said Rasmussen. Tax scholars at USC Law include Elizabeth Garrett , a member of the 2005 Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform; Edward McCaffery, a fellow at American College of Tax Counsel; Edward D. Kleinbard, former chief of staff of the U.S. Congress Joint Committee on Taxation; and Thomas Griffith, who has written extensively on tax matters and is the winner of the USC Law William A. Rutter ’55 Distinguished Teaching Award. ...
USC Law is the only top 20 law school on the West Coast and one of only six of the top 20 law schools in the nation to offer an LL.M. in Taxation. USC Law is Southern California ’s oldest and most prominent law school.
