What the school says:


The special complexity of tax law imposes stringent demands in terms of qualification on fiscal consultants. The Professional School at Leuphana University Lüneburg offers, therefore, the interdisciplinary and practice-oriented Master in Tax Law (LL.M.). The purpose of this course, during which students acquire extra-professional training in German tax law in only four semesters, is the German Chartered Fiscal Consultants' Examination (Steuerberaterexamen).

The Master’s Degree in Tax Law enhances the existing legal or business and economics qualifications by adding deeper knowledge in tax law and related disciplines, such as accounting, corporate or inheritance law. This expertise will enable students to provide consultancy services in tax return, tax optimization, and fiscal litigation at national level with confidence.

An important part of the Master’s Degree in Tax Law is the intensive preparation to the written and oral examination for the German Chartered Fiscal Consultants' Examination (Steuerberaterexamen). Here, students apply their knowledge of fiscal law in around 30 mock examinations covering all aspects of the real one. The discussions on the solutions are a good opportunity to further deepen the knowledge. Students are thus optimally prepared for the examination, which, thanks to the perfectly planned time table, can be taken immediately after completing the Master’s degree.

The program is offered in German language.
