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 that 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 towards the LL.M. requirements. Students so converting their status will be required to 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.
