For over three decades, our LLM in Taxation program has boldly lighted the way for individuals pursuing tax and estate planning law. Our program is ranked among the top 10 LLM programs nationwide1, and is consistently listed in The Recorder's “Best LLM Programs in California.”

Our LLM in Estate Planning is taught by the same faculty from our award-winning tax program, which includes the retired probate judge Marshall Whitley. GGU Law is the only law school in the western United States that offers an LLM in Estate Planning, Trust, and Probate Law. Our diverse array of course offerings is unmatched.

“The LLM in Tax program sincerely elevated my career in the San Francisco tax community. The professors brought theoretical and practical components to the classroom by relating the material to their professional experiences. I’ve established a close circuit of friends and colleagues through the vast and active alumni, and I grow professionally every day as a result.”
