1L HIGHLIGHT: From Elective to Epiphany

“I discovered my interest in tax when I took Income Taxation with Professor Brookes Billman LLM ’75 as my 1L elective. It just clicked for me right away.”

The NYU Advantage: A Deep Bench in Tax Offerings

“The great thing about being at NYU and being interested in tax at NYU is there is an almost unlimited number of courses you can take. I’ve pushed that limit. I’ve taken about 15 tax courses at this point, and there’s actually still many more courses that I can take as an LLM.”

2L Summer: Tax Time

“My 2L summer I worked at the Manhattan field office of the IRS Office of the Chief Council. I got to assist a very talented group of attorneys with all sorts of matters, ranging from substantiation of deductions all the way up to multimillion-dollar tax shelters. It was a very fun way to apply skills I’d learned at NYU.”

Vibrant Intellectual Life

“I’ve been to countless tax events at the Law School, everything from technical ones about corporate inversion transactions to Tax Movie Night. There are so many that you’re never going to have the opportunity to go to everything you want, but that’s a good problem to have.”

The Washington Square Way

“The tax program at NYU has an exceptional culture of collaboration among students and between students and faculty.”
