“A step toward the person you want to be.”
Our wish is for each student to learn independently to reach his or her own goals. To this end we provide a rich, high quality education with a wide range of support.
Doshisha University Law School has established an educational system in which students can steadily improve their abilities and knowledge through a cycle of preparation, participation and review, as part of a step-by-step curriculum that progresses from basics to fundamentals to application. Classes are small and match proficiency levels, with additional guidance available from instructors during office hours based on each student’s academic ability and needs.
Our program offers a wide variety of elective courses providing opportunities to learn from practitioners who are active on the front lines of their respective fields. This is useful not only for those who wish to become legal professionals, but also for those who are considering other career paths. The program is particularly well-developed in the area of international legal education, including an on-site practicum at European legal institutions, a degree program and credit transfer system in partnership with an American law school, and an internship program at overseas law firms.
We also offer a variety of programs to support students with their lives as students. These include introductory education at the time of admission and daily tutoring by faculty members and with further guidance by academic advisors. We also offer financial support to minimize the financial burden of tuition and other expenses so students can concentrate on their studies. Our Job Placement Support Team helps students find employment opportunities.
We hope that you will take full advantage of the services we offer and advance toward the person you want to be.
