Graduate Program in Law

From a desire to nurture legal professionals based upon the philosophy, “For Human Dignity,” Nanzan University’s Graduate Program in Law seeks candidates who have a strong interest in the directional movement of social trends as well as a serious regard for human rights and freedom within our modern society. The program maintains a fair admissions process that reflects these views, and we welcome candidates with various kinds of work experience and achievements.

Features of the Department

Curriculum is structured so that students develop qualities and skills that equip them for a legal profession, while at the same time learning the practical aspects of law. Classes include “Subjects of Human Dignity,” in which students conduct multifaceted investigations into the law and human dignity, “Subjects of Development and Innovations,” and the more academic field of “Society and Human Rights,” in which we emphasize the standpoint of citizens and workers while making a point of including those in more vulnerable positions in society. “Subjects of Development and Innovations” includes such classes as “Household/Juvenile Issues and the Law,” “Medicine and the Law” “Consumer Law,” and “Domiciles and the Law.”
