Taxation | Law


Taxation permeates almost every aspect of business and looms large in personal financial planning. The Law School courses in taxation law cater both for those who want a useful introduction to income tax and for those who want to specialise in the area. As taxation law is a case study in statutory interpretation, emphasis is placed on the effect the courts have had on it, while not losing sight of the aims of the legislation.

Undergraduate courses are directed at the policy and structure of the law rather than fine detail, but the aim is to demystify the law and solve practical problems. At postgraduate level students can specialise in taxation in the Master of Laws program.
