Adv LLM Paper
In addition to the courses described above, students must write an Adv LLM paper on a topic agreed upon with the Program Board. The Adv LLM paper must address and analyse a substantive issue of tax law of an international nature, and may not be merely descriptive or comparative. The Adv LLM paperought to be of publishable quality. In December, special sessions are devoted to introduce students to research on the internet, and lists with suggested paper topics are distributed around Christmas, with writing instruction classes offered even earlier in the academic year. Students are strongly suggested to decide on their Adv LLM paper topic by the end of April or early May. At that time Adv LLM paper discussion sessions are organised. The research and writing process is supervised by selected teachers of the Program. This approach, which has been developed over the past five years, turns out to create a highly stimulating setting for all students to start truly focusing on their Adv LLM paper.
