Graduate Tax Program


While there is no writing requirement for the LL.M. (in Taxation), students interested in writing a substantial paper while they are at NYU School of Law under the supervision of Professor H. David Rosenbloom, the Faculty Director of the International Tax Program, are encouraged to register for up to two credits of directed research. To register for directed research, students should have their sponsoring professor sign a copy of the outline for the paper proposal and submit the outline to Academic Services in Vanderbilt Hall, Room 409. Although all of our full-time faculty are available to sponsor research in any area of taxation, below is a list of faculty specialties to help guide your search for a sponsor:

Research Assistants

Additionally, many members of the tax faculty ask students to assist them in conducting research. Students typically work 10-15 hours per week depending on the needs of the faculty member. Research assistants are paid on an hourly basis. Interested students should check with the Office of Career Services regarding available openings. Alternatively, students should feel free to approach professors directly about their research needs.
