New Tax LLM Rankings by Corporate Tax Department Heads, in conjunction with has released their annual ranking of tax LLM programs by surveying corporate tax department heads.  This seems a far better methodology than the US News and World Report tax LLM rankings which rely on peer rankings by other tax LLM program faculty.

1. NYU (61.2% of respondents voted for this school in the top 5 for hiring  candidates)

2. Georgetown (52.6%)

3. Northwestern (19.7%)

4. Florida (17.8%)

5. Boston University (17.1%)

Although the top programs are of no surprise.  The data is surprising.  The conclusion is that the top programs for hiring are NYU and Georgetown.  While Florida is #2 in the US News Rankings, it does not seem to provide the same cache for hiring managers as NYU and Georgetown.  Could Florida’s relatively smaller class size be a factor?
