Training objectives

This course extends and refines the topics addressed in the basic program so as to prepare students for their work as professional tax consultants. We will focus on the underlying principles of tax law reaching beyond specific legislative measures, to identify those fundamental concepts that can guide the professional life of a consultant.
Students will thereby acquire the tools with which to approach the vast majority of specific problems encountered in professional practice for which we will also run special exercises.
