Graduate Tax Program

LLM Graduates 2018

Villanova University’s Graduate Tax Program—designed for legal, accounting and business professionals—offers students a learning experience few schools can match. Here, lawyers and accountants learn with and from each other in integrated classes that allow for in-depth, interdisciplinary examinations of tax principles and policies.

Conducted jointly by the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law and the Villanova School of Business, the program offers a Master of Laws in Taxation (LLM), Master of Taxation (MT) for non-lawyers, JD/LLM in Taxation, as well as Certificate Programs in specialized areas of taxation. Highlights include renowned faculty, comprehensive electives, on-campus and online formats, and the Nova Network.

Todd Aagaard, Vice Dean and Professor of Law, recently announced this year’s the recipients of the inaugural Diane E. Ambler '78 Faculty Curricular Innovation Award. The Award is given to a faculty member who has distinguished herself/himself through the creation and/or implementation of positive curricular or pedagogical change or development. The primary factor for the award is curricular innovation at the Law School that has the potential to influence the positive development of the Law School’s academic program both directly and also indirectly by influencing the way that others teach. For the inaugural recipients, the faculty committee chose Les Book, Professor of Law, and Joy Mullane, Professor of Law.

Book and Mullane were chosen for their innovative pedagogical approach first developed for the online Graduate Tax Program, which they each have then adapted and implemented for their Introduction to Federal Taxation courses in the JD program.
