Message from the Director

Director's Welcome

Richard T. AinsworthDear Students, Colleagues and Friends,

I'm pleased to welcome you to the BU Law Graduate Tax Program Web site, and to provide you with a bit of information about this nationally renowned program.

Our Graduate Tax Program currently enrolls 57 full-time students and 85 part-time students. These talented men and women, who received their law degrees from approximately 43 law schools in the U.S. and 15 overseas institutions, are diverse by every measure.

The relatively large size of the Graduate Tax Program makes it possible to offer a curriculum that's truly enviable in its breadth and depth, allowing students to concentrate their study of tax law, if they wish, in specific practice areas. Instruction is provided by both tax scholars who are members of the full-time faculty and distinguished tax practitioners from law firms, tax consulting firms and the Internal Revenue Service.

We encourage you to learn more about our school and our city through this site. And we certainly hope that you will contact us if you would like to receive a copy of our bulletin, if you have any further questions, or if you would like to stop by the School for a visit.
