Sydney Law School expands its offshore program with two new units in Japan

12 November 2008



Sydney Law School invites applications from undergraduate and postgraduate students alike for its new offshore program in Japan.

As part of an exciting initiative with Ritsumeikan University, Sydney Law School will deliver a program in Japanese Law and Japanese Law and the Economy that takes place in Kyoto and Tokyo respectively at separate times in February 2009.

Students will attend an introductory class in Sydney on 2 February 2009 before attending classes during 9-13 February (Kyoto) and 16-20 February 2009 (Tokyo).

"These units will be co-taught by leading professors and practitioners from Australia and Japan," said coordinator, Associate Professor Luke Nottage.
"The curriculum aims to compare, in a socio-economic context, the legal system of Australia's major regional partner in economic and security issues."

Postgraduate students can choose to study the units separately - Japanese Law and then  Japanese Law and the Economy - as a 6 credit point unit each with individual unit of study codes - LAWS 6879 and LAWS 6901.

Undergraduate students must study the two units together as one 8 credit point subject entitled Japanese Law, which has a single unit of study code - LAWS 3076.

Applications are welcome from students at other Australian Law Schools who can enrol on a cross-institutional basis.
