International and European Taxation programme for lawyers (LL.M.) and economists

Dear Candidate!

The application system is active, you can apply for the International and European Taxation Programme. The program will start in 2021 September by hybrid education.


ELTE Law launched a one-year long part-time advanced master programme in English on International and European Taxation for lawyers and economists in the capital of Hungary, Budapest in 2018.

Practitioners with law or economics degree can apply for the programme. Most of the courses are the very same for both groups of students, although the syllabus contains specialized courses on economics for lawyers, and on legal topics for economists. The synergies between legal and economic knowledge in the education lift the level of understanding of challenging tax issues.


The one-year long programme is divided into two semesters. The courses are held every second weekend on Friday and Saturday. First semester is about International Taxation. Second semester is on European Taxation. The modern and progressive syllabus is designed to give the students the knowledge necessary to understand the ongoing tax issues of the world we live in. The courses cover – among other topics – the BEPS project, state aids, transfer pricing issues, ATAD and ever-evolving case law of the CJEU and tax planning in practice.
The design of the courses is the following: Semester & curriculum
