LLM in International Tax Law with Mazars

Posted on 12/07/2018

The Dickson Poon School of Law has partnered with the international accounting and advisory firm Mazars to offer a specialised LLM in International Tax Law delivered through an advanced online learning environment to Mazars employees. Mazars is the first firm to offer its employees this LLM in International Tax Law, which is exclusively open to Mazars tax professionals for the first two years. The inaugural cohort includes participants from four continents.

The two-year advanced degree 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, which begins in September 2018, will be delivered in-person and via virtual learning environments across digital and mobile platforms. Eight modules focus on the key topics: international taxation, transfer pricing, European direct and indirect taxation. The Programme Director is Jonathan Schwarz, Visiting Professor at King's and a barrister practicing at Temple Tax Chambers and acknowledged international tax expert.

'We are pleased to partner with Mazars and launch this electronically delivered LLM in International Tax Law', said Professor Gillian Douglas, Executive Dean of The Dickson Poon School of Law. 'This is the first programme of its kind that we have developed, and we look forward to building on our experience of delivering these new advanced and practice-focused modules through combined online and face to face teaching'.

Renata Ardous, Head of the LLM in International Taxation Law, and International Tax Director at Mazars, said: 'We are very excited to be launching the LLM in International Taxation Law alongside King’s, a globally much respected academic institution. With its unique blend of world class technical teaching and the practical skills to bring the learnings to our clients, the course will deliver the full range of capabilities required by exceptional tax professionals'.

Anita de Casparis, Mazars Global Head of Tax, added: 'The LLM in International Taxation Law is the latest initiative in our global strategy of creating best-in-class development opportunities and a sign of the emphasis we place on investing in our people.'
