2012 Kyoto/Tokyo Seminar Program in Japanese Law

21 July 2011

We are now receiving Expressions of Interest for Sydney Law School's Offshore Program in Japan.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to study Japanese Law in-country.

The program is conducted intensively in a global and socio-economic context and is jointly organised by Sydney Law School and Ritsumeikan University College of Law.

Classes are co-taught in English jointly by Australia- and Japan-based academics and practitioners, to a combination of Japanese, Australian and international students.

If you are a postgraduate student, you can enrol in either the Kyoto Seminar (LAWS6879 Japanese Law, 6-10 February 2012) or the Tokyo Seminar (LAWS6901 Japanese Law & the Economy, 13-16 February 2012), or both.

If you are an undergraduate student, you must take the Kyoto Seminar and as least half the Tokyo Seminar (LAWS3444 Japanese Law).

Applications are welcome from students from other Australian and international Law Schools who can enrol cross-institutionally or as non-degree.

To support the Seminars particularly in Japan's time of need, following the devastating '3/11' earthquake and tsunami, alumnus Akira Kawamura (now IBA President) has donated a stipendium for a student experiencing financial hardship who wishes to enrol via Sydney Law School, in addition to the longstanding ANJeL Akira Kawamura Course Prize in Japanese Law for the best-performing student in the program.
