Students may complete the Certificate in Estate Planning as a stand-alone program or in conjunction with the University of Baltimore's LL.M. in Taxation program. Students completing the requirements of the LL.M. in Taxation program will also receive a Certificate in Estate Planning provided they satisfy the curriculum requirements of the Certificate in Estate Planning program.
Students enrolled in the stand-alone certificate program may choose to enroll instead in the University of Baltimore LL.M. in Taxation program; in this case, courses taken and grades received in the stand-alone certificate program will count toward the LL.M. requirements. Students so converting their status must complete the LL.M. requirements within five years of enrolling in the certificate program. Alternatively, a graduate of the certificate program may make a separate application to the LL.M. in Taxation program; in this case, advanced LL.M. credit for courses taken in the certificate program may be awarded under the advanced credit policy regularly employed by the LL.M. in Taxation program.
