Tax law is enjoying ever-greater importance in professional practice. There is high demand for jurists specialised in tax law in the fields of consultancy, administration and justice. Tax law is complex, and to master it requires solid and well-founded training. Moreover, national tax law currently finds itself increasingly affected by international developments. The Institute of Tax Law at the University of Bern offers a broad spectrum of lectures dealing with both national and international tax law. This approach provides students with a solid education focused on tax law that covers the fundamental aspects of national tax law, its international dimensions (and European interconnections) and specific individual topics relevant to professional practice.
