Making the most of yourself, and society
At Doshisha University Law School, students, faculty, and staff work together every day with the goal of cultivating professionals who combine rich humanity, sensitivity, and a sense of human rights, and who apply the law with conscience. In society today we are confronted with many problems, such as illness, accidents, family problems, growing equality gaps, environmental pollution, and security. The objectives of our law school show that professionals must have not only knowledge but also the principles and critical thinking skills needed to address these social problems.
Our law school values communication, both between faculty members and students, as well as among students. We offer small-group educational programs and faculty office hours in order to provide guidance according to each student’s academic ability and sense of purpose. In addition to basic courses for acquiring foundational legal knowledge, students can take a variety of elective courses, including advanced courses, to broaden and deepen their interest in specific legal issues. Students also have numerous opportunities to learn from practitioners who are active in wide range of fields.
We also focus on providing education on the international dimensions of legal matters so that students can acquire perspectives and tools for dealing with various issues relating to globalization. Support is also offered to aspiring students through financial aid such as scholarships and loans, as well as job placement assistance through our Job Placement Support Team.
How will you make the most of yourself in a complex society, and how will you make the most of that society? Let us tackle the question together.
