Certificate in Taxation

Students in their second and third year may elect to specialize in tax law, earning a Certificate in Tax Law. Students who have met the certificate requirements by the time of graduation will have this distinction noted on their transcripts and receive a certificate.

This certificate program is designed for students who commit themselves to intense study of the law of taxation, are willing to spend hours assisting low-income taxpayers in preparing individual income tax returns and will be engaged in solving problems that a practicing tax attorney would see in private or governmental practice.
