The Meiji University Law in Japan Program is an introductory class for foreign students and graduates to learn Japanese law in the historical and cultural context of Japanese society, which will be taught entirely in English. The program also focuses on contemporary issues within Japanese law from comparative perspectives.
The program features a number of field trips which will enhance the learning gained from the formal classes; for example, by observing how a trial is conducted, how a prison is managed and how Japanese lawyers work as partner or associate of a large law firm or/and as an in-house lawyer.
This program is an excellent opportunity to gain a sound understanding of the Japanese legal system. It opens educational opportunities to beginners who do/did not major in law, but are interested and willing to learn it through this two-week summer intensive course.
