Waseda University Law School, Tokyo, Japan

Michigan Law students may study Japanese judicial systems and legal issues during either the fall or winter tem at Waseda University in Tokyo.

Waseda Law School's mission is to develop lawyers with a global mindset who can transcend borders to protect the weak and serve the greater good.  Located on a quiet campus in the Shinjuku section of Tokyo, the school is near the city's massive government administrative complex as well as the busiest railway station in the world.

Combining an ultramodern future with a very traditional past, Tokyo is full of contrasts.  It hosts sumo championships and kabuki theater, yet has become the highest populated metropolis in the world and is home to more Fortune 500 Global  Companies than any other city on the planet.
