Welcome to LL293!  As students of tax law at LSE you are following in a very distinguished tradition. Taxation was one of the very first subjects to be taught at LSE. The teaching of tax law as an academic subject started at LSE, where it was introduced by Professor GSA Wheatcroft in 1957. Wheatcroft founded the British Tax Review and wrote the first versions of many of the leading texts on tax law, which (in their revised versions) are still heavily relied on by practitioners today. Indeed, Wheatcroft’s legacy explains why so many leading tax practitioners are LSE graduates.

You can find more details in relation to the classification scheme in the programme regulations and in the LLB student handbook. Details of tax related events and research within the LSE law department can be found in the taxation section of the Departmental website.
