New York University School of Law has created a new online executive LL.M. program in tax. The program will allow accomplished professionals from around the world to have online access to the same professors and curriculum as students in the school’s part-time Graduate Tax Program.
The “E-LLM,” which will begin in the fall 2008, is virtually identical to the current part-time LL.M. program. Students will enjoy the same professors, courses, assignments and services and take the same exams. Applicants will be subject to the same admissions criteria, and then as students they will be held to the same grading standards as full-time and part-time LL.M. students. The primary difference between the part-time program and the E-LLM is that E-LLM students “attend” lectures by viewing videos via their course websites, and like the students on campus, they must meet attendance requirements.
