Tax professors/courses/programs in NYU, Harvard etc.

Postby davidforlaw » Tue Sep 03, 2019 2:36 am

Hi guys! Could you tell me any tax law professors/courses/programs in NYU, Harvard or other T14 law schools? I'm currently considering which schools to apply and I'm interested in tax law.

Thanks! :D

Speaking as a tax lawyer, I'd focus first on getting into the best school possible, without considering any specialty specifics. Tax specific classes/professors should only be a tie breaker (for example NYU over Chicago, but not NYU over Harvard).

Not a tax lawyer but at one point seriously considered becoming one. I second nealric's advice. Attend the best law school possible regardless of that school's tax offerings (or lack thereof). For instance, Yale has a famously eccentric curriculum but one would be foolish to turn down Yale for NYU, even though NYU has the strongest tax offerings in the country.

Just get in best law school you can then go to NYU for tax LLM if you need it. Some firms will even pay for you to do it part time over a year or two.

Or just “visit” NYU for your 3L, take their tax course, and spare yourself the misery of living near Boston.
