About

The Bilingual Master’s (LL.M.) degree program in Law at the Kyushu University offers students the unique opportunity to engage in graduate level study of law in a “bilingual” environment at a law faculty in Japan. 

Overview

The program in Law at the Kyushu University  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.

BiP is principally intended for lawyers and/or Japanologists interested in:

  • Obtaining a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and society through the study of historical or contemporary issues in Japanese law & politics. 
  • Preparing for a legal career in Japan or connected to Japan by studying Japanese and international business law.
  • Learning more about Japan´s East Asian neighbours and locating Japan in the regional context. 
  • Improving Japanese language ability by studying law in Japanese, as well as attending regular language courses

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.

Programme Structure

Modules included:

  • Japanese Intellectual Property Law Practice
  • White Collar and Corporate Crime
  • Transnational Commercial Law and Foreign Investment Law
  • Japanese Law, Historical Perspective
