The Law School regularly hosts visitors from several prominent Japanese institutions, including Professors Atsushi Kinami (Kyoto University) and Yukiko Tsunoda (Meiji University and Tanaka & Partners), former Supreme Court Justices Itsuo Sonobe and Gen Kajitani, and many prominent practitioners. These institutional ties create a wide range of connections for students interested in study or employment in Japan.
Each year, the Law School invites several outstanding Japanese students to pursue an LL.M. degree or study as research scholars. These students, each of whom excelled in legal education in Japan, include lawyers, judges, prosecutors, government officials, and members of legal departments of prominent Japanese corporations. These visiting students serve as an invaluable resource for students interested in the study of Japan and Japanese law.
