The Graduate Tax Program has a great tradition of excellence, demonstrated by our student teams' success in the national Tax Challenge now known as the ABA Law School Tax Challenge and formerly the Arthur Anderson Tax Challenge. LL.M. students submit a detailed analysis of a complex corporate or international tax problem. We have dominated the competition over the past 20 years, placing first in the nation six times; second eight times; and third four times. Student team members participate through the Tax Research and Writing Course each fall and spend several months preparing for the competition.
