LLM Tax Program Receives Major Gift

An anonymous donor has pledged $150,000 to establish an LLM Tax Scholarship at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.

Established in 2002, the Tax Program led by Director, Philip Postlewaite, prepares an average of 40 students per year as experts in the field of tax law. The nine-month program boasts a comprehensive curriculum, outstanding faculty and one of the lowest student to faculty ratios of any graduate tax program in the country.

"This new scholarship will allow us to offer more generous financial aid packages to attract top candidates and help us further compete with other top tax programs nationally. This support is crucial as the cost of education rises," said Postlewaite. 

The LLM Tax Scholarship is the first donor-funded scholarship of its designation at the Law School. The donor felt strongly about supporting the tax program, saying, "I know the value this program offers and I’m pleased to contribute to help students receive an excellent education that will propel them further in their careers."

This gift is part of the Motion to Lead campaign, a $250 million fundraising initiative which has raised over $222M to date. The Law School remains exceedingly grateful to the alumni and friends who support its students, faculty, and programs.
