International Tax Program

The Harvard Law School International Tax Program was founded in 1952 pursuant to a resolution of the United Nations. For more than 60 years, the ITP has provided the finest available graduate education in taxation to future fiscal leaders and tax experts from all over the world. There are now more than 900 alumni, many of whom occupy senior positions in governments, international organizations, the private sector, and academia.

The International Tax Program Directory of Graduates is available on-line to ITP graduates, who are cordially invited to provide e-mail updates to [email protected] when their contact information changes.

The Program currently provides two opportunities for the study of tax law at Harvard:

  • Visiting Scholars and Researchers in Taxation: Each year the HLS Graduate Program hosts some 30 to 35 Visiting Scholars and Visiting Researchers from around the world. The eligibility requirements for the visitors program are described on the Graduate Program web site, but it should be noted that Visitors must be sponsored by a member of the HLS faculty. Researchers in Taxation should send a description of their project and credentials to Professor Alvin C. Warren, Jr.
  • Law graduates from outside the U.S. who plan careers in tax practice, government or academia can pursue a rich array of tax courses during the LL.M. year at Harvard Law School and may also engage in independent research in a tax subject supervised by a member of the Law School faculty.
