The University of Pittsburgh School of Law has been named one of nation’s best law schools for tax law by PreLaw magazine. Pitt Law was one of only 40 law schools, out of more than 200 nationally, to be ranked. PreLaw magazine graded law schools based on the breadth of their curricular offerings and considered multiple factors such as concentrations, clinics, centers, and externships.
Pitt Law’s Concentration in Tax Law is intended to provide students with a solid foundation in tax law that can be used either to enter a career in tax law, as a basis for pursuing further study in tax law, or as an adjunct to a career in another area of law. Students may pursue this concentration by taking a foundational course in tax law, six credits of elective courses, and three credits of skills-based courses.
By completing these courses, it is expected that students enrolled in the concentration will learn and understand the substantive and procedural law in the area of federal tax law and will acquire the ability to apply subject-matter expertise in the area of federal tax law in experiential settings that will benefit them as they enter a career in the tax field or in another field in which knowledge of tax law is important.
