The University of Alabama offers two online graduate degree programs. The LLM Concentrations in Taxation and Business Transactions are designed for recently graduated and practicing lawyers who want a rigorous, broad-based education in tax or business law without leaving their home or office.
The Graduate Tax program provides an educational opportunity to obtain a broad-based and in-depth advanced degree in tax law. Students can choose electives allowing for concentrations in either Estate Planning or Business Tax. The Graduate Business Concentration trains lawyers to serve the needs of clients throughout the life cycle of a business venture. The program offers technical training and skills-based instruction all through live, interactive online technologies.
Courses are taught by distinguished faculty and experienced tax lawyers from throughout the country. Many of the professors are authors and experts in their fields. Students attend virtual classrooms, where they interact fully with professors and classmates through video and audio. Students see and speak to their instructors, chat with classmates, and see and even share a whiteboard.
Although this is an online program, there are two required weekend visits to campus. Each two-year cycle begins with an Orientation weekend session at the Law School in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This is an opportunity for students to meet faculty and classmates, begin to build the professional relationships that are such an important part of any LLM program, and learn the technology they will be using for the next two years. Students are also introduced to a course in tax research. Then, at the end of the second summer, students are required to return to the Law School to take comprehensive exams covering the first-year basic, required courses.
Exams are administered through a secure course management system and the virtual classroom technology offers ways to periodically assess the level of comprehension (quizzes, polling devices, etc.). The program website provides for online registration and book ordering, course materials, and announcements. Attendance in the live virtual class is required but video streams and audio downloads of previous lectures are available after class. All online students have equal access to the Law School's library resources and legal databases through the web-based systems. An independent study/tax research course is available each semester to enable students to qualify for financial aid or loan deferment.
