Cost of Living
While U.S. News and World Report ranks University of Florida among the Top 50 best law schools in the country, it rises to the Top five for affordability based on in-state tuition and fees plus cost of living, according to American Bar Association data. UF Law’s tuition and fees are close to half the cost of many of its competitors in the northeast and competitive with other law schools across the south.
The Graduate Tax Program offers a variety of merit based assistantships and scholarships. All admitted applicants are automatically considered for all available awards. No separate application is required. Awards are generally made at the time of admission or shortly thereafter.
Florida Tax Review Graduate Tax Scholarships (Up to 85% of tuition, 7-8 per year)
Students with strong interests in tax, prior journal experience, and other related student organization experience will be considered. Early application is encouraged.
Merit scholarships are available for students admitted to the LL.M. in Taxation Program or LL.M. in International Taxation Program. Award amounts vary and depend on a holistic review of the student’s application. Students may be awarded either a merit scholarship or Florida Tax Review Graduate Tax Assistantship.
Funds for merit scholarships are provided by the College of Law and the following endowed funds:
- Dorini Family Graduate Tax Scholarship

Faculty Research Assistantships

Admitted students will be asked whether or not they wish to be considered for a research assistant position. Resumes of interested students will be circulated to faculty members. Students may receive both a merit scholarship and a faculty research assistantship.
