Program Description:

Florida's Graduate Tax Program, widely recognized as one of the best in the United States, provides comprehensive training to lawyers who plan to specialize in tax law. The program attracts outstanding students from all parts of the country and abroad who have satisfied the program's exacting admissions standards. The student body and reputation of the Graduate Tax Program attract employers nationally and internationally. Admission is determined by the applicant's potential for distinguished performance in and contribution to the program. The candidate's academic record, especially in law school, is of particular importance. Additional factors may include stature of institutions awarding the baccalaureate and law degrees, the applicant's professional experience and geographical factors. Generally, successful candidates have graduated within the top quarter of their law school class and have attained an honors average in their last two years of baccalaureate work. With these academic records, especially in law school, as the basic considerations, the potential of each applicant is measured against that of other candidates. The objective of the admissions policy is to fill each class with the best students from the applicant pool, consistent with maintenance of the program's high admission standards.
