"The GAFM LL.M. program helped me understand the taxation of international transactions so I can now feel confident in talking about tax planning for international transactions, in my case dealing with controlled and non-controlled foreign corporations from a U.S. tax position."
Michelle Bertolini, LL.M.
Assistant Professor, University of Hartford, College of Business,
Adjunct Professor, GAFM Master of Laws (LL.M.) Program Alumna

"The online LL.M. program afforded me the opportunity to continue working while I completed my Master's degree at home. The world-class instructors are practicing attorneys who work in this field and each lecture they bring their own tricks of the trade and priceless practical insight to each class. I have worked with both professors and classmates from all over the world in this program, from legal and non-legal backgrounds.
I like the emphasis on a risk-based compliant approach to tax planning, and collaborating on group projects with people from Panama to South Africa helped me gain experience working with both language barriers, differing experience levels and seemingly impossible time zones. This program gave me much more than I expected, and I would recommend it to anyone serious about accelerating a career in international tax and financial services."
