While need-based scholarships are not available to students in the online LLM program, there are many sources of merit and activity-based tuition funding at NYU. Students are automatically considered for generally available funds. In addition, there are a number of specific scholarships that are open to students that participate in the Tax Law Review, demonstrate extraordinary ability, demonstrate interest in tax litigation, or that meet other requirements.

Students should also explore alternative sources of funding, such as the possibility of obtaining aid from organizations and foundations in their home countries through contacting the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, the U.S. Information Agency, or Education USA.

Prospective students looking for more information on international funding sources can view “Study Abroad,” a guide published by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.

The program application deadline is December 17, but may be subject to changes and should be checked. In general, applications should be submitted well in advance of deadlines established by the school, however, as they may be considered on a rolling basis and program populations are limited.

Students are required to demonstrate English language proficiency for admission. A student who obtained a law degree from an institution in which English was the language of instruction, and which was located in a country where English is the primary language, is considered to have met this requirement. Others must obtain a certain minimum score on an English language proficiency test, as follows:

  • TOEFL (Internet-based): 100
  • IELTS: 7.0

NYU Online LLM Curriculum

As stated above, courses in the NYU Online LLM Program are focused on issues of taxation as they relate to various business entities and individuals. Courses include international taxation, taxation of mergers and acquisitions, taxation of property transactions, executive compensation matters, and more. Students can select the courses that suit them, but must take at least one course in tax procedure unless prior experience exempts them from this requirement.

NYU Online LLM Technology

The NYU Online LLM program is taught online, mainly through the use of recorded lectures. In addition to classroom video and audio, lecturer handwriting is also captured. Recordings are then uploaded to the online learning platform after each lecture, and are produced by a multi-camera video team (as opposed to a single camera sitting on a tripod). Lectures can be viewed as many times as a student wishes. The platform also offers other features such as correspondence with lecturers and other students.
