Tax law is always evolving, and attorneys who focus in this area need to be ready for whatever changes may arise. New statutes, court decisions, and administrative rulings are issued frequently. Taxes affect so much of our daily lives, and so many of the decisions made around the world, that there is almost no limit to how much can be learned and practiced in the realm of tax law. At Mitchell Hamline, students who choose to focus on tax law are taught not only the rules and regulations of taxes at all levels, but also the skills to be effective attorneys with the most up-to-date information.

Depending on their interests, students may choose to couple their tax law studies with another legal discipline. Those interested in wealth management may want to consider estate planning, while those concerned with how taxes are ultimately used should look at public interest law. Mitchell Hamline’s Center for Law and Business offers plenty of courses for students whose desire is to focus on the corporate side of tax law. No matter what students’ ultimate goals are by studying tax law, Mitchell Hamline has the means to lead them to a successful career.
