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 Washington School of Law, the University of California Hastings College of the Law, and Michigan State University College of Law in the United States, and the University of Faculty of Law in Germany. 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 , providing foreign students opportunities to learn about Japanese law and interact with our faculty and students.

Since April 2010, the University of Wisconsin Law School and Doshisha have had an innovative reciprocal exchange of credits program. Through this program qualifying Doshisha students may obtain almost half of the credits necessary for the Wisconsin LL.M. program prior to graduating from Doshisha.

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.
