NYU Tax LLM During First Year Associate

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Dec 24, 2015 3:59 am

Am thinking about getting a Tax LLM at NYU, which only requires an additional semester. Crazy to think this is possible to do while being a first year associate at a V10 in corporate practice? Is it even worthwhile to consider?

Know several associates who do a class a semester and it tends to be fine. Anything over that is probably pushing it.

Yeah, I don't think the school would let you be a full time student if you were working anyway. But assuming OP was an NYU JD and only needs 12 more credits for the LLM, doing 1 class each in the fall/spring/summer should get them there.

OP here. So it is not a crazy idea, but is it worth getting an LLM in Tax?
