Mazars’ Global Tax Practice, in partnership with King’s College London, offers a specialised LL.M (Master in Law) in International Tax Law.
Mazars is the first firm to offer its employees this LL.M programme, which launched in September 2018, and has been exclusive to Mazars tax professionals for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years. Delivered through an advanced online learning environment, the LL.M is available globally. Current participants emanate from Mazars offices across four continents.
This two-year advanced degree is delivered by the Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London, one of the oldest law schools in England and globally recognised as one of the best law schools in the world. The programme is designed to build comprehensive technical and practical skills for senior managers, directors and partners, covering the legal framework and intellectual tools necessary to navigate the complex international tax environment.
Teaching is delivered in-person and via virtual learning environments across digital and mobile platforms. Eight modules focus on key topics including: international taxation, transfer pricing, and European direct and indirect taxation. The Programme Director is Jonathan Schwarz, a barrister practicing at Temple Tax Chambers and acknowledged international tax expert.
“The LL.M has revealed itself to be an incredible instrument in broadening and updating our knowledge on international taxation, through identifying hot topics and allowing for an in-depth analysis on issues of utmost importance for us as professionals, as well as for our clients.”
