Master of Advanced Studies in International Tax Law


Read the impression of Giusy Bochicchio (one of our alumnae)

The Master of Advanced studies in International Tax Law
has been designed to provide in depth training for lawyers and economists who are interested in expanding their knowledge of the theory and practice of international tax law. The Program is aimed at university graduates whose studies included at least one substantive tax course. Candidates will have recently graduated from law school (or obtained a master's degree in economics or business) or will expect to do so before the courses start. Alternatively, they may already have obtained a few years experience in tax practice after their graduation (with a law or accounting firm, or in a Ministry of Finance or Revenue Service) or in teaching or research at a graduate institution.
