About Doshisha Law School

Admission Policy


Currently, Doshisha seeks to admit 40 students to its three-year program and 80 to its two-year program. Our admission policy focuses on attracting sensitive, well-educated, richly humanistic students who have a strong ambition to serve the nation as the legal professionals of the future. While the majority of our students enter the Law School directly after graduating from university, we also attract a significant number of applicants who have employment or other post-university experience. Our admission requirements and financial support system are intended to ensure that applicants from almost any social, economic or educational background can enter our program and become a legal professional. In its admissions decisions Doshisha Law School does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, nationality, gender, religion or any physical disability.
