Anyone a JD CPA that considered an LLM in taxation? Wondering if it’s worth it or not. I’ve been at both law firms and cpa firms. End goal is to go out on my own in the estate planning arena. Thus far I’ve worked on mostly tax accounting/consulting area.

I’m doing tax LLM for a different reasons than you mentioned, but some that were interested in estate planing made connections during classes and are now practicing.

Your time and money would be better-spent self-studying the law and on forums like r/lawfirm to help hang a shingle imo. Most LLMs use the degree as a connection bridge into big law imo.

If the goal is to learn trusts and estates at a big law firm, you’d probably need to pursue LLM. If you have the pedigree, experience, and or connections to get you in without an LLM, go for it. But ultimately, if you’re looking to go solo, LLM is likely not needed. Just depends on your anticipated career progression.
