Program overview

There is something striking about the recent globalization of business activities in our society. Japanese companies are now trading with foreign companies that have different cultures and languages, and are often required to prepare for possible disputes in foreign countries. In the Global Course of the Department of International Business Law, students will hone their legal knowledge and skills for the international stage by learning how to conduct trade negotiations and how to prevent or resolve disputes from a legal perspective. More specifically, the Global Course has smaller classes and pursues three objectives: acquiring the basic knowledge of Japanese law necessary for conducting international business; developing legal skills required for a type of legal thinking that transcends the differences between national laws (for example, a common framework for thinking about contract law); and improving English and Japanese communication skills (note, however, that students may complete the whole program in English).

Career after graduation

As mentioned in the program overview, the Global Course will hone students' legal knowledge and skills for working in an international environment. It will also help students find positions at companies that operate globally, and not only at Japanese companies. The program is also useful for finding positions at think tanks and the international organizations.

Future places of employment

Japanese and foreign companies that operate globally (in the manufacturing, financial, IT and other sectors), think tanks, international organizations, and overseas graduate schools.
