MLaw International Tax

Over the past years International Tax Law has gained significant importance for the global economy and is regularly in the news. For this reason, the Faculty of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Administration of the University of Lausanne is now offering a new specialization in International Tax Law under the Master of Law degree. This new specialization looks at international tax developments from a global perspective, bridging the study of law with broader economic, political and governance issues.
