The International Tax & Financial Services program was the pioneer 11 years ago with online interactive graduate law courses and best-in-industry accredited training. Our distinguished global team of law professors and current students includes experts, partners and senior managers at firms, directors and vice-presidents of banks, governments and regulatory officials, counsel for multinational companies, as well as staff from international financial service providers, financial advisors, and the firms that consult to them.

Because we developed as an online interactive program to serve the global industry from 1996, instead of a residential program trying to deliver itself to more students, our team is a cohesive network of faculty and alumni that reside globally (Asia, Africa, Europe, North & South America, the Caribbean), connect via our social networks, who approach learning from the working realities of our professional lives, from Senior Manager presentation deadlines, to family vacation commitments.

Certification and Professional Designation articulation has been obtained with professional boards of standards, where graduates of law courses from the accredited ABA school are immediately eligible for certification registration. Most all Certifications are obtainable as a non-degree seeking student. The program delivers online or residential in-house professional certification as well as corporate training to a variety of service providers.

Networking includes an integrated Career Services approach within lectures as well as alumni support – a bold approach whereby each student receives an alumni mentor and is required to engage with 10 years of previous alumni. Courses may include interactive real time lectures and full access to our online research library of international materials via Westlaw, Lexis, CCH, Checkpoint, IBFD, BNA, Tax Analysts, World Tax Executive, Oceana, Butterworths, and numerous other legal, tax, compliance, e-business, and wealth management databases.
