About Doshisha Law School

Academic Exchange Programs

Since its inception Doshisha Law School has entered into academic cooperation agreements with Duke Law School, the University of Wisconsin Law School, the University of California Hastings College of the Law, Michigan State University College of Law, and Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine Law School in California in the United States, and the University of Tübingen Faculty of Law in Germany, Konkuk University Law School in Korea. Through these and other arrangements, Doshisha and our partner law schools conduct joint research and educational projects. Doshisha is also hosting summer programs for both Michigan State University and the University of Tübingen, providing foreign students opportunities to learn about Japanese law and interact with our faculty and students.

Through its academic relationships Doshisha is able to offer its students and graduates opportunities to learn about foreign law as well as foreign perspectives on Japanese law. There are also opportunities to pursue foreign graduate degrees and legal qualifications through scholarships offered by some partner institutions, as well as our dual degree program with the Michigan State University College of Law.

Training legal professionals with an international focus is a core aspect of our educational philosophy. So Doshisha is always looking for opportunities to deepen existing ties and develop new programs with additional partner schools and institutions around the world.
