  • TaxProf Blog: Will a Tax LL.M. Cleanse a 4th Tier, Bottom of the Class J.D.?


    Let us say that the title to the post is not our own - it's the verbatim title of a nice post by University of Cincinnati Law School tax professor Paul Caron over at the TaxProf Blog. (We wrestled with our own title, but ultimately realized we couldn't come close to Caron's punchy, succinct gem.)

    In the post, Caron tackles something that we'd imagine a lot of current law students or out-of-work young lawyers have at least given a passing thought to in recent months: how about an advanced degree in tax? (Many schools offer LL.Ms - masters degrees in tax - which essentially add on one extra year of coursework after the JD.) If I aced a one-year program, the thinking might go, would I have a better shot of landing at a big law firm - or landing in the tax department of the same law firm that laid me off?

    Caron seems prompted to write the post by a sort-of advice column that appeared in the New York Law Journal on Monday.
