Getting a law degree vs. Masters in taxation?
I graduated college with an undergrad in accounting and finance. I am currently getting my cpa and working as a tax accountant. I am trying to figure out if i should pursue a law degree or get a masters in taxation. If I get a law degree,I am interested in specializing in tax law. I have allways wanted to attend law school, but I am told that there is an excess amount of lawyers, thus depressing wages. Further, my work will pay for a masters in taxation, but will not pay for a law degree. What do you think, law degree or masters in tax. To be honest, law school is a dream, but I think about alternatives, b/c of cost.
