There are a number of questions that are repeatedly asked to IITF about our programs and courses. For quick reference we have detailed some of these questions here for you. If you have questions that are not covered here, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IITF and Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL) have enjoyed an association for some 2 years now. This started off as a collaboration to offer truly international tax programs internationally, via a a well respected educational institution. For further verification please visit http://www.llmprogram.org/, or contact Prof. W. Byrnes.
Thomas Jefferson School of Law is an American Bar Association (ABA) approved tertiary education institution in the US. The ABA is recognized by the US Department of Education, and the states’ equivalents, as the primary accrediting body for US law schools. Thomas Jefferson School of Law is also approved by the American Association of Law Schools as well as the American Academy of Financial Management. The American Bar Association imposes strict standards of education on Thomas Jefferson School of Law and its associated educational institutions such as IITF. The programs offered by IITF have been reviewed and approved these courses as complying with the stringent requirements of the American Bar Association imposed on TJSL, as these courses, on completion, will earn the successful student credits towards the TJSL Master of Laws (Legum Magister), Master of Science of Law (Juris Scientiae Magister) and Doctor of Juridical Science (Scientiae Juridicae Doctor). For the reason it was necessary to ensure that these courses comply with the ABA standards imposed on this law school (and indirectly on IITF). Consequently it is not necessary to obtain standing with SAQA. You are ultimately earning credits towards a US LLM degree. The interim qualifications are also US accredited qualifications (having complied with the US standards of education mentioned). While I believe that South African institutions offer high quality degrees, it is beyond contention that the world view holds a US degree in a substantially higher regard.
All program are delivered to students via the internet. This makes the deployment of information so much quicker. It is also far more convenient for students to study via the Internet. Study materials are deployed via the LexisNexis Blackboard. Lectures are held LIVE via the internet on the WIMBA.com lecture system. As a requirement of the American Bar Association, all courses accredited by the ABA requires to offer LIVE lectures. WIMBA.com allows you to plug into the lecture from anywhere in the world, directly from your personal computer. Each of the lectures are also recorded and archived, making it very easy to refer back to previous lectures, or in a situation where you have missed a lecture, you will not have to rely on other students’ notes to catch up.
