Kyushu University (LL.M.)
LL.M.(Master of Laws)
In 1994, the Graduate School of Law at Kyushu University established Japan’s first master’s level program taught entirely in English: the LL.M. program.
Drawing upon faculty members with particular strengths in these fields of law, the LL.M. program is designed to provide both Japanese and international students with the ability to confront the many challenges of contemporary international economic affairs and commercial transactions.
Taught in English from a Japanese perspective, the LL.M. program seeks to develop a critical understanding of economic and legal principles within the framework of international & comparative business law.
Bilingual Master’s Program in Law (BiP)
The Bilingual Master’s degree program in Laws (BiP) offers students the unique opportunity to engage in graduate level study of law in a “bilingual” environment at a law faculty in Japan. The program seeks to overcome one of the principal obstacles to graduate legal education in Japan, namely language, by providing students with the possibility of taking classes and writing a thesis in English, as well as Japanese.
As such, the program facilitates rapid improvement in Japanese ability whilst allowing students to engage in classroom study and supervised research across a wide range of subjects in the field of law.
Kyushu University’s LL.D. program offers students the unique opportunity of preparing a doctoral thesis on law in English whilst studying at a Japanese university. The program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to complete high-level research in law.
Participants will pursue a closely supervised program of research for at least 6 consecutive semesters (3 years), prior to submitting a final dissertation.
