Summer Before Tax LLM

Postby WanyeKest » Wed Nov 07, 2018 3:03 pm

What do people, who have graduated from law school in the Spring, usually do the Summer before starting the Tax LLM program in the Fall at one of the big 3 LLM programs? Take the bar in my home state or state where the program is, or find a summer clerkship/Internship/or summer associate role (if possible)?

I am still searching for tax related jobs at the moment as a 3L, but was curious that if I decided to go down the Tax LLM route, what I should be doing the summer before.

I did DOJ SLIP Tax section during this period. If you can find a summer job, I think it's worth doing. 2-3 weeks of full time bar study should do it as long as your summer job is pretty 9-5 and you can put in a good 3-4 hours outside of working time.
