Welcome to LLM Tax Students

Welcome to incoming LLM in Taxation students!   I look forward to meeting you and acquainting you with some of the services, facilities, resources and librarians at the Mendik Law Library.  Many of our services are available both onsite and offsite.  We have a fine tax collection, and I hope you will take the opportunity to use it while you are here. 


In addition to many print resources and excellent tax services on Lexis and Westlaw, we also have access to other outstanding electronic services:  CCH Intelliconnect for tax and business research, Checkpoint, BNA Tax Management Library (including BNA tax portfolios), and the Tax Analysts family of publications including Tax Notes, State Tax Notes and Worldwide Tax Daily.


Today at orientation entering LLM students will learn how to


  • Find books and other materials in the physical  Library
  • Use the Tax Research Resources at NYLS Research Guide
  • Learn how to  access a variety of specialized electronic tax sources from home
