Suffolk Law to launch dual master of laws in taxation and juris doctor program


Suffolk University announced an expanded option Friday for law school students that will allow them to receive a master of laws degree in taxation and a juris doctor degree concurrently. The new program, which will launch in May 2015, includes an intensive summer 12-credit, 10-week summer session that will let students graduate in the same three-year day program or four-year evening program period required for obtaining a single law degree. “Federal tax law is complex and detailed,’’ Anthony Polito, associate dean of the law school, said in a statement. “Students who intend to focus their practice in taxation or who wish to practice in the corporate, business planning, estate planning, or financial sectors must have in-depth knowledge of multiple areas of federal tax law.”
