Is tax law an option for me?

Postby letsgodeacs99 » Thu Apr 19, 2018 2:25 pm

I will be attending a T14 school in the fall, and I'm trying to look into different fields of law to see where I may want to specialize. After looking into tax law, it seems like something I would be very interested in. However, I have no undergrad accounting/business background (I was a poli sci major). Will this hurt my employment prospects in the future, or will some additional schooling such as an LLM make up for it?

Going off of what I have heard from tax attorneys, tax background/courses in law school are definitely helpful but ultimately, if you want to be an actual tax attorney v. an attorney at a firm that somewhat deals with tax amongst other things, you need an LLM to get the job.
