Build your career as a tax law specialist  

Tax law impacts the outcomes of all business and work activities, distinguish yourself with specialist knowledge in this globally critical field.

From 2016 The University of Western Australia’s Law School will offer a postgraduate Taxation Law program for tax practitioners who wish to establish their career as a tax law specialist.

Available as graduate diploma and master's courses, this advanced program is designed to give tax professionals the expertise necessary to specialise in the complex and varied field of taxation law.

Students will have the option of specialising in either domestic or international tax law and will develop an advanced understanding of the technicalities of tax law in a range of specialist areas. Subjects covered include international tax, resource tax, advanced capital gains, corporate tax, taxation of trusts and transfer pricing.

The expertise of the Law School also allows for the opportunity to undertake units rarely offered at the tertiary level, such as tax dispute resolution, resource taxation and tax in China.

The program is delivered by internationally recognised and award-winning taxation experts from academia and the profession.
